How to Make Easter Cadbury Magic Bars
The full directions and measurements for this magic bar recipe are in the printable recipe card. This is a visual walk through for readers to use if they need.
Start by preheating the oven and prepping your 9×13 pan. Then place parchment paper in a greased pan.
Start by melting butter and graham crackers in a bowl and mix. Press tightly down in the pan.
Next sprinkle with coconut, pecans, and spread over the pan. Drizzle on the condensed milk.
Next add on all 3 varieties of chocolate chips, and the chopped Cadbury eggs. Press the candy down slightly and then bake as directed.
Allow the dessert bars to cool, then lift out of the pan with the parchment paper and slice and serve.
Room Temperature – You can store these bars at room temperature in an airtight container. They will store for 3-5 days at room temperature. You can also store the bars in the fridge for a more chewy consistency.
Freezing – If you don’t think you will eat them all right away, the Cadbury Easter bars will freeze for 2-3 months. Just store in a sealed bag or container. If you do stack, place wax paper between layers to prevent sticking.
Variations To Recipe
Here are a few changes you can make with this recipe that will be a tasty swap.
- Swap graham crackers with cookie crumbs or even pretzels to make the base.
- Walnuts instead of pecans, or even slivered almonds.
- You could do a cookie dough base if you didn’t want graham crackers.
- Instead of all three different flavors of chocolate you can swap with a just one or two flavors of chocolate.
- Do peanut butter chips in replace of semi-sweet chocolate.
Can You Half The Recipe
Yes, if you don’t want to make a full 9×13 just use a 8×8 pan and then half the recipe. It will work just the same, and the bake time will be a bit less as you won’t cook quite as long as the full size.
Why Do You Allow The Bars To Cool Before Slicing?
The bars need to cool as they are very gooey when you first pull out of the oven. Allowing the chocolate to cool and set up a bit helps the Cadbury bars hold their shape.
