Tropical Magic Bars
"Tropical Magic bars are so rich and luxurious with only a few simple ingredients. They’re perfect for snacking at home or bringing to a party to share! If you don’t have a food processor, you can still make this recipe! Instead, you can crush your Oreos in a plastic bag until they are very fine and pour them into a bowl. Add the melted butter and mix together with a fork until it’s of the right consistency. You can also crush the macadamia nuts in a bag, or in a blender if you have one!"
Preparation Time10 min
Chilling Time2 hr
Cooking Time40 min
Cooking Vessel Size8 x 8 Baking Pan
- 24 golden Oreos
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 1 1/2 cup vanilla (white) chocolate chips
- 6 ounces package dried pineapple
- 1 cup sweetened coconut
- 4 ounces dry roasted macadamia nuts
- 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Prepare an 8-inch baking pan by spraying with non-stick spray w/ flour. You can even line the pan with foil or parchment paper, and spray the paper with non-stick spray, this will allow for easy removal
Add the Oreos and melted butter to a food processor and blend until crumbs are fine. Pour the crumbs into the bottom of the prepared pan and press into the bottom. Bake at 325 for 10 minutes.
While the crust is baking and cooling, chop the dried pineapple into small pieces and blend the macadamia nuts in a food processor until crumbs are formed.
Start to layer the remaining ingredients onto the cooked crust. Sprinkle 1 cup of the white chocolate chips along the bottom, then sprinkle with the pineapple, coconut, and nuts. Pour the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the top. Decorate the top with the remaining chocolate chips and a little coconut.
Turn the temperature up to 350 degrees. Bake for 30 minutes, just until the sides are starting to turn golden in color. Cool completely, then cover with foil and chill for a few hours. When ready to cut into bars, allow them to sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes, and then slice and enjoy!
