Recipe Backstory: This is an old family recipe that my mom received from her Grandmother, Dodo. These Magic Cookie Bars are like heaven in a bar! They're soft & gooey & taste like magic! CHEMISTRY INFORMATION: The pure substances are water used to grow the coconut, or the salt in graham cracker crumbs. The homogeneous mixtures are condensed milk, chocolate morsels, graham cracker crumbs, & butter. The heterogeneous mixtures include the magic cookie bars themselves, the coconut before it was shredded, & the walnuts because they were from a living thing. The butter or margarine being melted, the nuts being chopped, & the graham crackers being crumbled are all physical changes. The magic cookie bars when browning slightly, & the digestion occurring within the cow before the milk was made are two chemical changes.
