Hello Dollies, or Magic Bars as many people call them, have been a favorite of our family for years. For those of you not familiar with them they are a bar cookie with a graham cracker crust, chocolate chips, pecans, and coconut. They are then topped with sweetened condensed milk and baked so that the milk melts and brings all of the ingredients together in a decedent gooey square.
Last month I saw that Raegun over at raegunramblings.com had made Mini Magic Pies and all I could think was “Brilliant!” Sometimes you just know right away something is going to be good and this was definitely on of them. Seriously, you have to make some!
I started by making a few with the traditional ingredients and they were great; but then I thought, wouldn’t these be so fun to have as a “Make Your Own Pie” bar? The answer to that is “Yes!!” So I gathered together a dozen different ingredients that I thought would be fun and set them up one afternoon for my kids and their friends and that is how Kitchen Sink Pies were born.
The kids thought it was the greatest thing ever and they loved getting to express their own personality. One made one was all black and white, another filled it with all M&M’s and another made sure to get some of each of the ingredients into the pie. After they came out of the oven we topped them with ice cream and dug in. So much fun!
They really are very simple and take zero baking skills to make. You buy the mini graham pie crusts and the rest in just filling them and putting them in the oven. Simple as that! I’ve listed the ingredients that I used in the recipe below. You don’t need to have all of them and I’m sure you can think of ones that you would like to add. (Let me know if you discover something wonderful!)
