What’s better than munching on a bag of Cosmos Creations? What about using Cosmos Creations in some of your favorite sweet treats! Cooking with Cosmos is a new series we’re working on where we take some of the best classic dishes and replace ingredients with Cosmos. We hope you enjoy this series as much as we do! Magic bars are nothing new, but we wondered what this classic treat would taste like with a Cosmos Creations crust…and boy are we glad we did because the finished product did not disappoint!

Ingredients

  • 4 Cups Cosmos Creations, caramel flavor
  • 1/2 Cup butter, melted
  • 1 Cup butterscotch chips
  • 1 Cup chocolate chips
  • 1 Cup coconut, shredded
  • 1 Cup nuts, chopped, optional
  • 1 fourteen ounce can sweetened condensed milk

Directions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 by 13 glass baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.

In a food processor fitted with the metal blade, pour the 4 cups of caramel cosmos in, grind until fine.

Pour into a medium sized bowl. Mix in melted butter until mixture is crumbly.

Press the Cosmos mix into the bottom of the greased baking pan, making sure it is as even as possible. Sprinkle with butterscotch chips, chocolate chips, coconut and chopped nuts. 

Cover evenly with the entire can of sweetened condensed milk. Bake for 25-35 minutes. Top will be bubbly and browned.

Let cool for 4-6 hours before cutting.
