Halloween Magic Bars

Happy Monday!
Can I just go on record in saying that I am
Ya'll....there is just not enough time in
the day to get done all that I have to get done.
My biggest stress right now is
sunlight, or rather the lack of it.
I leave for work and it is dark, I get home from work and
it is dark.
This is not a good thing for someone trying
to take pictures for a blog.
Can someone please do something about that.
I just can not seem to get a good picture anymore.
What do you do?
How do you get great pictures, when you have to
photograph with limited sunlight hours?
At this point, I am tempted to load up my
goodies, backdrops and camera,
and have a little photo shoot
in the parking lot at work on my lunch hour!
You know what is easy?
Magic Bars!

I found a bag of Halloween mix chocolate chips by Nestle, and knew
right away what I wanted to make with them.
Magic bars are easy and quick to make
and are always yummy!
I used the recipe from Eagle Brand, and you can find it Here.
As suggested in the recipe, I lined my pan with aluminum foil, and it made
removing the bars from the pan so much easier, when completely cooled
simply remove the entire batch out of the pan, using the foil, and you will get
perfect squares every time.
Here is a fun fact...
I have a dear friend, she lives in Missouri not, but
was born and raised in Tennessee, there, they call these
Hello Dolly Bars.
Why is that?
Anyway, if you are looking for a fun and fast Halloween
Treat for a party, or just to enjoy, make these...
they truly are MAGIC!

  1. I use a Lowel Ego light. Love it. The dark and I are friends now. I love magic bars. I wish I had time to make these for Halloween but I want to try them after Halloween when I get the stuff on clearance.

  2. I've never heard them called magic bars, always knew them by Hello Dolly bars as well. So tell me WHY, we don't get any samples at work?

  3. These are a really fun looking Halloween treat! I pinned it! I followed you on all your social media.

  4. I pinned these also, they look delicious!
    I plan to make these very soon!! =) Yum!

  5. Believe me, if I could make it lighter longer I would! I lived in Arizona where they never change their clocks. Never. How nice is that? Living in California, I dread the time change because I'm dead tired at 7pm. Then I get that whole Seasonal Affective Disorder from lack of sunshine and just want to sleep.

    Have you tried making a light box? I saw Mike had a great tutorial. We can't live all winter without your beautiful photography, y'know!

  6. These look so fun to make and serve this week! I saw you on What's Cookin Wednesday. We would love to have you pin this on The Four Seasons Blog Hop! Find us at

  7. Thanks for linking up with us at the Four Seasons Blog Hop. This is a fantastic recipe. I had already pinned it.

  8. I remember my gramma making these - well the regular ol' magic bars! Love the Halloween twist! :) I have Buffered this to share on Facebook! Thanks so much for linking up to All My Bloggy Friends this week - I hope you have a great weekend!
