Ha! Take that, Magic Cookie Bars!
I'd been promising my three-year-old daughter all week that we'd do some baking, so yesterday we made this recipe for Magic Cookie Bars. Talk about decadent! Chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, walnuts, sweetened condensed milk, coconut... These bars are definitely not low-cal!
Now, I'm a huge chocoholic, but for the past couple of weeks I've been trying hard to lose a few pounds for summer. I knew these bars would be my nemesis if I let them—but I didn't! I ate half of a bar, exercised away the calories on the treadmill (which took me about forty grueling minutes), and said sayonara to the rest of the pan. They're good, but for me, they're just not worth the calories (and the work it takes to burn those calories). The rest of the family can have them. Take that, Magic Cookie Bars!
Wishing you all a wonderful Saturday. ☺
