Consider yourself extremely lucky if you get to live near the ocean! Don’t get us wrong. There are many great things about living smack dab in the middle of the country. However, since it’s already 90+ degrees outside it would be so awesome to submerge ourselves in the salty sea. It’s times like these that we have to get a little creative and channel our inner Houdini. This Saturday we’re doing a little wizardry by baking Caramel Magic Bars and enjoying them while we hang ten with our peeps. How? You ask. Driveway and deck surfing! No need for waves or surfboards. Treating in our lawn chairs while shooting the breeze with our pals is the only requirement. It’s trickery at its sweetest!
1½ cup graham cracker crumbs
6 Tbsp butter, melted
1-14oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup caramels bits
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup Heath Bits
Mix graham cracker crumbs with melted butter & press in a sprayed 13x9in pan.
Pour about half the can of condensed milk over crust.
Layer your pretzels as close together as you like over the condensed milk/crust.
Sprinkle caramels bits, chocolate chips, & coconut flakes.
Pour remaining half of condensed milk on top.
Break up some extra pretzels & sprinkle a few extra chocolate chips, caramel bits, and Heath bits, and pretzels above the condensed milk.
