Magic bars


          Am aflat de aceasta prajitura cu mult timp in urma de la o amica si dupa ce am preparat-o am uitat de ea, caci trebuie sa recunosc ca nu sunt un fan ciocolata in prajituri :) am o reala problema cand vreau sa cumpar ceva de la un coffee shop pe aici prin Toronto, aproape toate prajiturelele au glazura de un fel sau altul, iar cand intreb de ceva fara zahar deasupra, deci "plain", se uita ciudat la mine :) cu o privire care zice "cum poti sa nu iubesti toppingul?" :))
         Ca sa revin la subiect, din cand in cand mai fac cate ceva cu ciocolata pentru sotul meu, sau ca mi se pune pata pe cine stie ce desert ce vreau sa il incerc. Magic bars sau Prajitura Magica, face parte din experimentele mele, si imi place tare mult caci e o combinatie foarte potrivita intre biscuite, cocos, nuci si ciocolata, similara cu batoanele Snickers. Se pastreaza foarte bine, si are un gust deosebit pentru cat de simplu se prepara. Reteta exacta (eu am modificat-o o idee) o vazusem la DiamondLovesCuisine care mi-a reamintit de ea, va sugerez sa ii vizitati blogul, este o fata extraordinara cu niste maini de aur!
           I found out about this recipe a long time ago from a friend of mine and after I made it myself, I totally forgot about it, since I have to admit I'm not really a huge fan of desserts that contain chocolate :) I have a real problem when I want to buy something from a coffee shop here in Toronto, almost all cookies have a glaze of some kind, and if I ask about something "plain", without any sugar on top, I get a funny look that says "How can you not love toppings?" :))
          Getting back to the point, from time to time, I do make chocolate desserts for my husband, or because I really wanna try some new recipe. Magic Bars are one of my experiments which I enjoy since it has a very good combination between crackers, coconut, nuts and chocolate, similar to Snickers. It's very tasty and lasts for days. I saw the exact recipe at DiamondLovesCuisine, who reminded me of Magic Bars, I really recommend her amazing blog, she's a lovely girl with golden hands!


 Pt  1 tava 23x23/ For 23/23 pan size:

   120 g unt/120 g butter
   150 g biscuiti (eu am avut cu miere)/150 g graham crumbs
   100 g cocos/100 g coconut flakes
   150 g ciocolata fulgi/150 g chocolate chips
   100 g nuci/100 g walnuts
   400 ml lapte condensat/400 ml condensed milk

Cum se face/How it's made:

Atentie! Nu apasati sau amestecati straturile, doar presaram un strat peste altul si introducem in cuptor.
Topim untul la microunde si il turnam in tava.
Attention! We do not press the layers, or mix anything, just make layers and place in the oven.
We first melt the butter and we pour it in the pan.

Zdrobim bine biscuitii si ii presaram peste unt intr-un strat uniform, fara sa apasam.
On the melted butter, we place the cracker crumbs evenly.

Peste biscuiti presaram fulgii de cocos cat mai uniform.
We add the coconut on top evenly.

 Peste cocos punem ciocolata fulgi, eu am cumparat bobite mici de ciocolata, dar puteti sa  taiati bucatele ciocolata daca preferati (nu va recomand sa razuiti ciocolata)
We place the chocolate chips evenly, you can chop some chocolate if you like.

Peste ciocolata intindem in start uniform nuca taiata bucati mici.(puteti inlocui cu alune de padure sau migdale)
We add the chopped walnuts on top of the chocolate chips evenly.(you can replace the walnuts with hazelnuts or almond)

Peste nuca, intindem in start cat mai uniform laptele condensat (eu am avut conserva de 300 ml, aici asa sunt toate, si a iesit mai uscata putin prajitura, va recomand sa puneti 400 ml!)
We pour condensed milk all over the pan (I suggest you use 400 ml condensed milk, I only had 300 ml, and it was a little bit dry)

Introducem tava in cuptorul preincalzit la 180 grade timp de 20-25 minute, pana incepe sa se rumeneasca putin; la mine a stat o idee cam mult.
We place the pan in the preheated oven at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, until it starts to golden brown a little; mine stayed in the oven a little bit more than it had to.

Lasati sa se raceasca complet si taiati dupa preferinta. Eu am pus tava putin in frigider, ca sa se taie mai bine.
O puteti pastra in frigider pentru mai multe zile, dupa o zi parca e si mai buna!
We remove the pan from the oven and let it cool off. We can place it in the fridge a little so it's easier to slice.
We slice it as we please. You can keep it in the fridge for days, because it gets better with each day, if it resists that long :))

Foarte simplu de facut iar daca aveti copii, cu siguranta va disparea repejor din farfurii :) Bon appetit!
It's very easy to make and  if you have children the bars will disappear in no time :)) Bon appetit!

Sper sa va placa! Bon appetit!
Hope you enjoy!
