a stack of Death By Chocolate Magic Cookie Bars topped with fudge sauce

Chewy, Chocolate Magic Cookie Bars are a huge hit with my family!  These are topped with a delicious fudge sauce and can be prepared and baked in just half an hour. It is one of the most amazing rich chocolaty things you will ever make! We love Magic Cookie Bars in our house!

One of the best things about these Death by Chocolate Magic Cookie Bars is that it’s made in one pan!! Chocolate cookie crumbs, Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk, and loads of chocolate chips, yum! I make mine without coconut, but you could always sprinkle some shredded, sweetened coconut over them, and place them on top of ice cream for an amazing sundae. I line my pan with parchment paper to make them easy to get out and cut.   Be sure to cool them completely before cutting!

I topped them with 5 Minute Wicked Fudge Sauce (although, I top a lot of things with it because it’s irresistible)!

  1. these look amazing but I don’t like white chocolate.
    Any other thing I could use instead?
    Thanks so much
    Love your blog!!!!!!5 stars

  2. This is delicious! I couldn’t find couldn’t find chocolate cookies or crumbs that the recipe called for so I just used a chocolate cookie pie crust from the store and it was sooo amazing! I cooked it the same temp and time, I did cut back a little on the chocolate chips it called for. Will definitely be making again!5 stars

  3. Everything tasted delicious, but when I baked the chocolate bar for 25 min as instructed, it came out watery. Should I cook it for longer until it hardens?5 stars

    1. I haven’t had this issue Mya so I can’t say for sure what the issue was. You will want to make sure they cool completely before cutting into squares as that will help them set too.

  4. I made this recipe, the name suits it, way way toouch chocolate it would seem. I also ,of course, made the wicked ridge sauce AND heated smaller amounts in microwave and out on ic cream and was like hot fudge sundae from dairy queen or Goodrich. Do, there’s another use for fudge sauce!4 stars

    1. Yes, if you can find Chocolate Sweetened Condensed milk, you can use that in place of the cocoa powder and condensed milk.

  5. Put whipped cream on top of the fudge sauce to make it even more amazing. You’re welcome. :)

    I made it with what was on hand, which means, that since I was out of milk chocolate chips, I used Hershey’s Special Dark. And I couldn’t find my regular cocoa, only the Special Dark, so I used that, too, for an even deeper, darker chocolate taste…

  6. I have made this recipe 4x and they are absolutely delectable in taste. The unfortunate part is I have tried to vary the recipe and cooking directions each time because they just won’t come out as bars. They are better served with a fork or spoon, unless you overcook them. Don’t waste your time looking for boxed Oreo’s. If you see them, then you have found a rarity, so congrats! The recipe calls for one can of sweetened condensed milk but fails to tell how many ounces that can should be. I will continue to try even though I am dissapointed because the taste really is that good!

    1. Oreos arent chocolate wafers. There are chocolate wafers you can buy for this. They come in a yellow package with cellophane around it. It is long and skinny. I forgot what the name of them is but probably can find out if you google chocolate wafers. Hope this helps.
