Turn Magic Bars into SAMOAS! Samoa Girl Scout Cookies are my favorite: shortbread, chocolate, caramel, and coconut. These Samoa Magic Bars are just like Samoa Cookies, but in magic bar form. Plus they're super easy to make!


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter — softened
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chips — semi-sweet or milk
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 3/4 cup Kraft caramel bits — or about 18 square caramels, cut in half
  • 1 can — 14 ounces regular or fat-free sweetened condensed milk


  1. Line a 9x13” pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. The foil is optional, but helps aid in removing these from the pan.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  3. Beat butter in a stand mixer until smooth. Mix in flour, sugar, and salt. Beat until the mixture is crumbly. It’s done mixing when you can press it together between your fingers and it sticks together. (You can use a hand mixer but it will take a really long time to come together, FYI.)
  4. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove hot crust from the oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips, coconut, and caramels1.
  6. Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over the top. Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden around the edges. Cool completely before cutting.
  7. Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days. These can be frozen in a single layer in a resealable plastic bag or plastic container.
