Whether you know them as magic bars or seven layer bars, one thing is for sure: you’ve never had them quite like this before! Traditionally, these bars have graham crackers as a base. In this fun and festive spin, we’ve replaced graham cracker crust with gingersnap crumbs and added pumpkin puree, cinnamon, and nutmeg to the sweetened condensed milk. Don’t worry, there’s still plenty of chocolate chips to go around – three different kinds, to be exact! Top it all off with toasted coconut and you’re good to go. What’s not to love about these delicious bars? They’re sure to be a hit at all of your holiday events coming up.
