Got 10 minutes -- even 5?
Then you can make these magic bars. All you have to do is layer and bake 7 delicious ingredients together in a pan, and voila -- you have these incredibly rich, sweet, gooey, sticky cookie bars that are slightly reminiscent of blondies...only much more decadent from all the chocolate, butterscotch, pecan and coconut goodies piled on top. They are seriously magic, I tell ya ;)
So make these indulgent treats if it's already 10pm at night and you suddenly realize that you need something for your company's bake sale the next day, or if you're craving something sweet but are feeling just a smidge bit lazy...or if your hubby forgets to tell you that his close guy friends are flying in for the weekend until only a couple of hours before they arrive :P
PS - between the three of them, those boys killed the entire batch by Saturday night...word.
