Samoa Magic Bars
But I guess no matter where I move to, there will always be access to Samoas, aka one of my fave cookies of all time. Who doesn’t enjoy that crispy, nutty toasted coconut, the smooth, chewy caramel, the soft, milky chocolate and that crunch from the cookie embedded underneath? I know I can’t.

Red Velvet Cookie and Cream Magic Bars
I’m not against box mixes but I’ve always imagined the ‘cool chavy kids’ would never bake from scratch. Not that I’ve ever noticed one of these peeps within half a mile radius of the baking aisle! But if I did, I’d be betting my life they were heading there for the ready make pancakes (hello… eggs, flour and milk!) and box mixes.

Smoreo Seven Layer Bars
Since I loved the way the Gingerbread Oreo 7-Layer Bars turned out, I decided to create a similar bars recipe but without the seasonal flavors. A traditional S'mOreo is 4 layers: one Oreo half, a toasted marshmallow, a chocolate bar, and a second Oreo half. We're adding three more layers here: semi-sweet chocolate, white chocolate, and sweetened condensed milk.

Welcome to Crazy for Crust, where I share recipes that are sometimes crazy, often with a crust, and always served with a slice of life.

  1. All sounds sooooo yummy. A few years ago, when baking for my daughters’ school bake sale, I thought; “graham crackers and chocolate….2/3 of a s’more already”. So I just subbed out mini marshmallows for coconut (put them on during the last few minutes of baking, watching carefully for that nexus of perfect brown-ness and melted, but still individual marshmallow-ness) and; voila! S’mores Magic bars. I bet it would work even including the coconut. Oh, also, letting them sit completely untouched overnight improved the texture and sliceability of the marshmallow topping.

  2. I’m a stay-at-home man-wife (my actual wife works, and I’m unemployed at the moment), and I’ve been looking for some good 7-layer-bar recipes! Yep, I do the cooking…..or part of it. Since I’ve been home so much, I’ve really grown to love cooking. Gotten pretty good, too, I might add! My gravy and fried chicken is almost Heaven. I definitely will bookmark this page, and make some of these soon!
