    An old favorite

    De Fench from Chicago, IL

    My friends mother gave me this recipe several years ago in college, sans the raspberry jam. very delicious!

    Yummy AND easy!

    Julie Taylor from West Allis, WI

    What's not to love about Magic Bars!!! With or without the raspberry they bring joy! --Although the raspberry does add another layer of enjoyment. I LOVE when I make something that my husband is convinced he won't like "I don't like coconut!" BUT then he's so tempted that he tries it anyway and eats the majority of the pan!!! Excellent recipe.

    Easy and (Dangerously) Delicious

    Kristy Holt from

    I use both chocolate and white chocolate chips, as I love the pairing of white chocolate and raspberry, and it gives the bars a nice variation of coloring. I also leave out the walnuts. -This is a go-to dessert/treat for a "girls" movie night with friends.

    Raspberry Magic Bars

    Lois Griffith from MCMURRAY, PA

    I have made this bar cookie twice for crowds and each time, I have been asked by many people for the recipe. I have also been told that someone who did not normally care for either coconut or chocolate could not get enough of these cookies. Great & easy! I find it easier to cut if I chill the finished cookies first. Small size recommended. They are rich.

    Raspberry Magic ???

    Sue Zawisa from FARMINGTON, MI

    I have made magic bars beore and they have always turned out great...I tried this and was not impressed...the bars were very gooey...did not hold together and never seemed to firm up...I will try them again and see if it gets better but not really too impressed

    very tasty!

    Cheryl Meilleur from Niverville, MB

    I made this tonight and it was so yummy. I didn't have any raspberry jam without seeds so I used strawberry jam and the flavor of the jam with this recipe is what really adds the nice touch to the taste. I also used orea baking crumbs instead and it was a really nice touch of chocolate and I cut back on the chocolate chips to only 1 cup. I will be making this again for our family since we all really liked it. Thank you for the quick, tasty treat!

    Yummy!

    Cathy Davidson from Clarksville, TN

    Just looking at the ingredients is a clue that this is a great recipe. Love the flavors, texture, and was so easy. Will definetly make these again. (I halved the recipe, since there are only two in my family, and it still turned out great)

    Great Variation

    Tammy Dubuque from LA GRANGE, CA

    I made my kids magic cookie bars for the first time at Thanksgiving. Now they want it for school parties, after school treats, etc. This was a great variation. I am going to try other flavors too.

    great hit

    ana teresa garcia from LAREDO, TX

    I made these bars over the Christmas holidays. My children loved them and so did the rest of the family. Both my kids decided that they wanted to help make the bars. They really enjoy baking. The sad thing is that we don't have much time to do it. Baking as a family is the most wonderful time for me as a MOM.

    Better than regular magic bars!

    Anna Shelton from WATERFORD, MI

    This was yummier than the regular magic bar cookies! I even used the 1/3 less sugar raspberry jam and it was excellent. These freeze really well so it's a bonus!

    New twist

    Liz Raub from ,

    I have only ever had magic bars without the jam. Instead we would add either butterscotch chips or toffee candy pieces. But the jam is very good for a more grown up taste.

    I have had magic bars without the raspberry before and they were good. When the raspberry was added it gave the bar an extra kick that was out of this world. Thank you for the recipe.

    Extra stars for this recipe! The raspberry makes the flavor extra special, and holds all the nuts and cocoanut from falling off. We love these bars!

    wow raspberries

    maggie miller-wright from fillmore, CA

    I had never made magic bars until this recipe. I had a jar of raspberry jam that I bought for something else but did not want to do them. This bar was wonderful and so good. I cannot believe I was eating raspberry anything...but this was excellent.

    This is the easiest & most fool proof cookie there is. When I first made this cookie - over 20 years ago, I did not use the raspberry jam. My family especially my sister -LOVED this cookie. I make it every year for the holidays!

    Twist on an old favorite!

    JUDY DRAGANJAC from BADEN, PA

    Years ago when I was a teenager, my friend's Mom made these bars for us at our sleep over. The flavor was a mazing! Now at 51 I'm appreciating a little twist on this old favorite. The raspberry jam was a wonderful addition for "grown-up" taste appeal!

    Easy Variations

    BETH HARRISON from LOGANVILLE, GA

    when making these I mixed the coconut,nuts and choc chips together and then poured it on and pressed it down. Also I could not buy Jam so used jelly instead and it still worked well. Yummy, very sweet they go well with fresh cup of coffee!

    I premeasured the morsels, coconut, walnuts, and chocolate chips so the kids were able to do the sprinkling as required.

    Great bars for a picnic! I didn't have any to bring home. Refreshing taste with the raspberries and coconut.
