Chocolate Magic Bars

It is way beyond me that something this easy is so good!  And for the life of me I should not keep any of these ingredients on hand.  I honestly could eat the entire pan by myself and almost did last night but GI Joe saved the day and he ate the other half!

Yesterday was one of those days that you just want to stay curled up in a blanket by the fire.  It was quite cold and rainy. I just wanted to stay home, but I had shopping to do.   My niece, that is in pharmacy school, is getting married in June and next Saturday she is having her first wedding shower in Savannah.  We picked up her gift and wouldn’t you know it they had Lenox Butler’s Pantry on sale.  I have wanted it since the first day I set my eyes on it.  Yes, I bought  eight place settings and three serving pieces.  Now if you know someone who wants Vintage Vine in beige, please let me know.  I really need to unload it!  GI Joe said,”Well, Happy Anniversary, Valentine’s Day and Birthday!”  It is so worth it though.

Since having a light dinner last night, I really wanted to go to downtown Villa Rica to Gabe’s.  Their Bread Pudding is the best.  Not wanting to venture out in the rain and cold,  I stood in front of the pantry with the  door open and all I saw was  sweetened condensed milk and semisweet chocolate pieces.  I told myself not to make those bad Chocolate Magic Bars, but myself did not listen.

Candied Fruit Magic Bars

We all have favorites that we love to eat and make during the holidays.  This is one of my all time favorites.  It is great tasting and very easy to put together.  Just what we all need this time of the year.  There is one problem.  It is very hard just to eat one square!!  I made these last night and found myself having a cup of coffee with two of these sweet morsels.

Looking at the recipe last night I could not believe how long I had been making them. I got the recipe one Thanksgiving at my Dad’s. My step mother always made them for Christmas.   On the back of the recipe I had written  sizes of my nephews 2T and size 8 so that I could pick them up a couple of things for Christmas.  They are both young men now.  One in his last year of residency and the other  is running a farm!  Time flies!!!
