It’s been a boring few weeks in our kitchen. No baby yet but just not big desire to cook, I can’t seem to stand for as long before I get really sore, I am counting down the time until I get back into the kitchen, for now we have been living off of kraft mac and cheese, pancakes, frozen pizza, and take out.
I made these for a Halloween potluck at work, I made them in a cake pan and cut them figuring it would be easier then doing individual for work. These were excellent, they had a slight pumpkin flavor but not over pumpkiny. I have changed the recipe to a 9 X 13 pan, if you want to make them individually go to Pick Palates blog.
Pumpkin Magic Bars (From: Picky Palate)
- 1/2 Cup melted butter
- 1 1/2 Cups graham cracker crumbs
- 4 oz softened cream cheese
- 1 1/2 Cups pumpkin puree
- 6 Tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 Cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 Cup coarsely chopped cashews (I omitted)
- 1 1/2 Cups sweetened shredded coconut
- 8 oz sweetened condensed milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place melted butter and graham cracker crumbs into a bowl; mix to combine. Press into the bottom of pan. Bake for 12 minutes then remove from oven.
In a bowl beat the pumpkin, softened cream cheese, sugar and cinnamon until smooth. Spoon evenly over each graham cracker crust, about 2 small spoonfuls. Next layer chocolate chips evenly over pumpkin layer following with cashews, coconut and condensed milk. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until top is golden brown. Remove and let cool.
