Magic Cake Bars

I know a lot of you have had chocolate chip toffee bars or some form of them with the graham cracker crust or the flour sugar crust with the sweetened condensed milk. Well I found this variation over at Lynn's Kitchen Adventures and knew I had to try them out. She used a chocolate cake mix and I started making them and realized I was all out of cake mixes. I had a brownie mix which I do not use very often (only for food storage)because we love homemade better so I thought it would be good for this recipe. It did not disappoint. These were really yummy. I would have to say just as good as the original ones. Give these a try using a cake mix or a brownie mix.

Magic Cake Bars adapted from Lynn's Kitchen Adventures
1 pkg of chocolate cake mix or a 9x13 brownie mix
1 cup butter (Lynn used 1/2 cup-you decide)but using the brownie mix I felt it needed more butter
1 1/2 cups butterscotch chips
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
1 cup coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
2 (14 oz cans) sweetened condensed milk

Place cake mix in a bowl and cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly. Press into a large cookie sheet or a 15x10 jelly roll type pan. Sprinkle with the chips, coconut, and nuts. Pour the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the top. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes. Cool for 30 minutes and then cut into bars.

So yummy My kids who don't ususally like coconut and nuts in things loved them!!!

YUM! Hand over the pan, along with a fork. That's all I would need. (ok, maybe a glass of milk or a cup of coffee, too!)
