Ingredients

  • 24 Golden Oreos or vanilla sandwich cookies (regular or gluten-free)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1 1/2 cups vanilla white chocolate chips
  • 6 ounce package dried pineapple
  • 1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
  • 4 ounces dry roasted macadamia nuts
  • 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Prepare an 8-inch square baking pan by lining with foil (shiny side down) or parchment paper, sprayed with non-stick spray. TIP: allow an overhang for easy removal from the pan after baking.
  • Add the Oreos and melted butter to a food processor and blend until crumbs are fine. They will look like wet sand.
  • 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.
  • After removing the crust from the oven turn the temperature up to 350 degrees.

Layering the Bars

  • Sprinkle nuts along the bottom on top of crust. Follow with 1 cup of the white chocolate chips, then sprinkle with the coconut followed by the pineapple.
  • Pour the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the top.
  • Decorate the top with the remaining chocolate chips and a little coconut.

Baking the Magic Bars

  • Bake the bars for 30 minutes, just until the sides are starting to turn golden in color.
  • Cool completely, then cover with foil and chill in the refrigerator 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!
