Spiced Apple Magic Bars

9:00:00 PM

I've been seeing all over the place these magic bars recipes--where you create a crust with a cake mix, then add toppings, then pour sweetened condensed milk all over it. This combo creates a yummy cookie like bar...everyone I know (at least, a bunch of bloggers) have been raving over these recipes. I even pinned a compilation from Crazy for Crust with a bunch of magic bar recipes.

But I then I got some granny smith apples in my produce basket. And I decided I wanted an apple magic bar...but I couldn't find one that was simple enough for me...so I made it up!


1 box spice cake mix
1 stick of butter, melted
1 egg
1 can sweetened condensed milk (or substitute 1/3 cup evaporated milk, 1 cup sugar, and 3 tbsp butter that has been heated until all the ingredients are dissolved...which is what I did since we were out of sweetened condensed milk)
2 granny smith apples, cored and sliced
1 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix cake mix, melted butter, and egg. You can get a child helper to do this part.

But be prepared to help, since the batter will be thick.

Press the batter into a greased 9x13 dish.

Place sliced apples on the batter, then sprinkle with nuts. Pour sweeten condensed milk over everything.

Bake for 30-35 minutes. The batter will rise up into the apples.

Enjoy the spiced apple yumminess.
