October is next week. Um, what? I’m at a loss for words over the fact that it’s OCTOBER that soon.

October means Halloween. Which means I need to start turning out Halloween treats. Witches, Ghosts, Pumpkins, Eyeballs. Problem is…every time I start thinking Halloween I’m coming up crickets.

So, until I get my cutesy inspiration back, I’m going to stick with my black t-shirt of goodies: the magic bar.

Specifically Candy Corn Magic Bars. A seven-layer magic bar made with candy corn. So it’s perfect for Halloween!

I am one of those people who doesn’t really like candy corn straight up. I like it in things…like mixes or cookies or fudge, snack mix or bark. But alone, it’s not my favorite. Actually, it’s those dreaded two words…too sweet.

But no. When you add it to magic bars, it’s not too sweet. All that other sugar cuts the sweetness. Or…something. ๐Ÿ™‚ Plus, peanuts or peanut butter (or peanut butter chips) go so well with candy corn, like when you make Butterfinger Fudge or Payday Fudge.

Candy Corn Magic Bars are perfect for Halloween because they’re full of candy corn and sweetness!

Let’s talk about the layers in these perfect Halloween Magic Bars!

  • Graham cracker crust: you can use a box of graham cracker crumbs or make your own!
  • White chocolate chips
  • Peanut butter chips: peanut butter and candy corn go so well together!
  • Coconut: a magic bar staple, but you can substitute peanuts
  • Candy Corn, obviously
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk, what makes the magic happen!

These magic bars are way too good. Addicting, even. The candy corn is so pretty on the top. These would be a wow at a Halloween party…or just because you want to eat them.

Candy Corn Magic Bars are PERFECT for Halloween! They have a graham cracker crust and are filled with white chocolate, peanut butter chips, and lots of candy corn!

How to make the perfect candy corn magic bars:

  1. Be sure to useย fresh candy corn, not the stuff that’s been in your pantry for a year. It’ll get meltier and not be hard after baking.
  2. If you’re worried about the candy corn, you can add it after baking but I’ve made this several times and it’s not been hard.
  3. If you can’t find peanut butter chips you can use butterscotch or more white chocolate.
  4. Add some chopped peanuts to make this taste like a payday candy bar!
  5. If your kids hate coconut you can leave it out.

I think this is the mood I’m in for Halloween!

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Cool Time 1 hour
Total Time 45 minutes
Yield 24 bars
Serving Size 1 bar


  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup peanut butter chips
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1 1/2 cups candy corn
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9x13โ€ pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • I used a box of graham cracker crumbs, but if you only have actual graham crackers, process them in a food processor until they are a fine crumb. Stir into butter. Press into the bottom of your prepared pan.
  • Sprinkle white chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, coconut, and candy corn over the top. Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over the top of the bars.
  • Bake for about 25 minutes, until they get golden around the edges. Cool completely before slicing into bars.

  1. I don’t think I’ll be buying anymore candy corn. I’ve made myself sick one too many times this fall lol.

    But these look AMAZING. Like, maybe-I-should-go-buy-some-amazing…

  2. YUM – these look awesome. Magic bars always remind me of being a kid. So I love to make them now, and these are an awesome twist.

  3. I actually cant stand candy corn either like you said its too sweet but these bars look perfect for Halloween!

  4. I am the odd one here who loves candy corn nibbled one color at a time. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hadn’t even imagined baking with them! I love how the candy corn turns your world famous magic bars into Halloween Magic Bars!! Candy corn now comes in seasonal colors for the different holidays ( I still have some pretty pastel ones left over from Easter clearance candy.) I am filing this under decorating ideas so that I don’t forget this recipe can be used for spring or winter holidays too! Thanks for the recipe and the inspiration, Dorothy!

  5. These look AMAZING! I wish you could magically send one over to me for a lunch treat ๐Ÿ™‚ Please!
