I started these of with a a fudgy chocolate cookie dough. Bake that about halfway through before piling on the rest of the goodies. It doesn’t have a cookie texture in the end. No. The finished product tasted more like…magic! :)

Anyway, when you pull the partially baked dough from the oven you’re going to add some of these:

Reeses Pieces Easter Eggs and Coconut

Mmmm. Add in coconut, chocolate chips, and pour on a can of sweetened condensed milk.  Bake another 15 minutes or so and you will have Easter Egg Magic Gooey Bars that you will never forget! I have a feeling variations will be made for every holiday :)  Happy baking!

Cookie Crust
Step 1
Preheat oven to 350.
In a large bowl cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add cocoa, salt, and vanilla and mix again until well blended. Beat in eggs one at a time. Gradually mix in flour and baking soda on low speed untl well blended. Spread into a greased 9x13" pan and bake for 15 minutes.

    These look amazing! I had no idea that Reese’s Piece’s came in an egg shape. How fun!

  3. Steph, these are absolutely incredible! You know how I have a special place in my heart for anything that starts and/or ends with “magic bar.” And the coconut! And the Reese’s eggs! Is it just me, or do Reese’s instantly become more irresistible once they’re dyed in pastel colors? Haha.

  4. the crust alone sounds to die for Stephanie! I love reese’s eggs so much! And coconut, of course. I love magic bars of any kind!
