Peanut Butter Magic Cookie Bars #AD

In my 2.5 years living in America some years ago, one of the great things I brought back with me (aside from 2 children) was a recipe for 7 layer magic cookie bars. It was a clipping that I'd saved from a Sunday newspaper, with a coupon for condensed milk. The coupons were always for the expensive brands so I rarely used them, but I kept the recipes all the same. In fact I returned home with a box full of recipe clippings and think I still have them somewhere, despite now being able to Google any recipe that I would ever need.

7 layer magic cookie bars were just that - 7 layers, with the magic being how easy they are to make. There's no mixing or rubbing in or blending involved, unless you include the crushing of the biscuits and chopping of nuts. They are pretty effortless though, and totally moreish, and perfect with an afternoon cuppa right before a lockdown afternoon nap.

As the recipe originates from America, the 'biscuits' (that's a TOTALLY different thing in America) were Graham crackers, which are generally substituted in UK recipes with digestive biscuits. The nuts used are generally walnuts or pecans, but as I'm using peanut butter I'm using peanuts. You could use unsalted, but I like a touch of saltiness to balance out all that sugar!

Look at all of those layers of sweet & salty peanutty goodness. Just perfect for National Peanut Butter Day 2021 on 24th January!

The best way to eat them is with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and warm SKIPPY Peanut Butter poured over the top. SKIPPY Peanut Butter is packed full of sweet American peanuts (over 90% in fact), and the Smooth, Extra Creamy variety is so smooth that when it is warmed up it could be mistaken for a sauce, which is perfect poured over puddings in these cold winter months.

Take a look at my TikTok to see how I made them, and scroll down to see the full recipe.
