Luscious Layer Bars - a simple dessert idea topped with chocolate and butterscotch chips, coconut and sweetened condensed milk! { lilluna.com }

I LOVE desserts! You guy shouldn’t be surprised to hear that because there usually seems to be at least one dessert recipe on the site each week. What can I say? I have a sweet tooth. 😉 I’ve blogged about this before, but we usually have plenty of excuses to make sweets, whether for company coming over or for the hubby’s students. That means I love to try out new desserts (as well as make old favorites) for these events, and today’s Magic Bars recipe has become a new favorite!

The reason I love it so much is because it’s so simple and tastes like a million bucks. In fact, I made it for a Pizza Night at the park we planned last month with 10 families and I had several people asking for the recipe. When I told them what it was they couldn’t believe how simple it was. I went on to explain that it’s easy and also has sweetened condensed milk which gives it that gooey, delicious taste that is irresistible.
