RECIPE BACKSTORY
I had never heard of Magic Cookie Bars until I saw a boxed version from Eagle Brand. I tried them and fell in love, but realized that I could easily make my own for less money and get more bars! There are so many different ways these can be done, which is really the best part of the recipe!
