"A graham cracker crust is topped with chocolate chips, cherries and coconut in a chewy caramel layer."
Who could resist this?


I ran across this recipe on allrecipe.com and just had to make this different version of the magic cookie bar.
Chocolate and cherries are my favorite.
After I made this, I had to take half of it out to the shop for the guys or I would have ate the whole thing.
Even the quys didn't turn their noses up at them and ate them all up, in one day.
