Don’t these Christmas magic cookie bars look festive?? I just love the way they turned out! With their red and green holiday M&M’s They are going to look so festive on a Christmas cookie tray . 🙂

This recipe is so incredibly simple. If you are familiar with traditional 7-layer magic cookie bars, then you already know how to make this recipe. I just took that classic recipe and dressed it up a little for Christmas. 🙂

The beauty of this recipe is how quick and easy it is to make. It starts with a simple graham cracker crust, then you add a layer of sweetened condensed milk. After that all you have to do is sprinkle on all your yummy toppings and bake!

Not only is it easy, of course it is also delicious! The buttery graham cracker crust and the sweet chocolatey toppings are just perfect together! The end result is chewy and crunchy and sweet and way too easy to eat a lot of! 🙂

This recipe was fun to make because it was an easy one for Zeke to help with! He loved sprinkling all the toppings on! And of course he ate plenty of chocolate chips and M&M’s while he was helping. 😉

I love the addition of holiday M&M’s to this classic recipe. It gives the bars a little bit of extra crunch, and of course it makes them extra festive and pretty!
