Sweet with a Hint of Spice

We’ve been told, mostly by our husbands, that we’re mostly sweet with a hint of spice. I guess we can be a bit sassy from time to time. But isn’t sugar and spice what girls are made of??? So with Cinco de Mayo just around the corner we’ve decided to add a little bit of spice to our Saturday sweet treat. Our half adult/half kid friendly version of Mexican Magic Bars have a hint of cinnamon which gives them just enough of a kick to remind you that sweet and spicy are a perfect combination. We think our husbands will agree. That’s if they know what’s good for them😉!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/3 cups crushed graham crackers
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1 cup sweetened coconut flakes
  • 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk

Preparation

In 9×13-inch baking dish, mix crackers, cinnamon, and melted butter; press onto bottom. Layer with chocolate chips. Sprinkle half the pan with pecans (adult side) and the other half with coconut (kid side). Pour condensed milk over the top. Bake at 375 degrees until browned, 25 minutes.
