We didn’t think magic bars could get any more magical, but add more chocolate and raspberry jam and we are in magic bar paradise.
These squares have a gooey coconut filling sandwiched between a chocolate cardamom cookie base and a layer of raspberry jam topped with toasted almonds and more chocolate.
They are my variation of the popular Magic Cookie Bar or Hello Dolly Square recipe that I bet many of you are familiar with. As a teenager, I used make a special trip across town to a cafe that sold Hello Dollies, until I learned how easy they are to make at home. This is a recipe that calls for a can of sweetened condensed milk, that ‘magic’ ingredient that makes everything taste SO good.Print
