Recipe for Magic Cookie Bars with Sixlets
Fall is here and along with it comes all the amazing smells and holiday food! My “Happy Fall Y’all” Wreath is on the front door and I have my pumpkin spice candle burning. The temperatures have been nice and cool as well. I never need an excuse to bake but the smells and cool temps are definitely a good reason to get in the kitchen and start baking.
Aren’t these Sixlets from SweetWorks fun? I just love the fall colors and knew I had to use them in a recipe.
I started by putting aluminum foil in my pan and spraying it. Then I poured melted butter and crushed graham crackers on the bottom of the pan. This is a fun one to do with the kids. You can put your graham crackers in a ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling pin. Depending on your child’s age and “enthusiasm” you may want to double the baggie.
Once your crust is laid our a can of sweetened condensed milk and sprinkle with shredded coconut.
After the coconut I sprinkled caramel and chocolate chips. This is fun because the kiddos can help sprinkle all the ingredients also. You really can’t mess it up. You can also substitute the butterscotch or peanut butter chips for the caramel.
For the top layer I used my fall colored sixlets. I love how colorful it looks! I put it in a preheated oven and baked it for 30 minutes. Once cooled slice into bars and enjoy!
- 1 and 1/2 cups crushed graham crackers
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- 14 oz of sweetened condensed milk
- 1 and 1/2 cup shredded coconut
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1 cup caramel chips
- 1 cup Sixlets
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Line 9×13 pan with aluminum foil and spray lightly with cooking spray.
- Pour in melted butter, then graham crackers. Press with spoon to make a crust.
- Pour the can of sweetened condensed milk over the crust.
- Sprinkle the shredded coconut.
- Sprinkle the chocolate and caramel chips.
- Sprinkle the sixlets.
- Bake for 30 minutes.
- Cool then cut into bars.

I’d have to go with the solid white chocolate bunny because I don’t eat regular chocolate and not too big on candy.

Sixlets bring back memories before my mom passed away of us going shopping and buying penny candy these was the ones I use to buy and share with my mom. Been many many years ago but wonderful to remember
Nerds are DS5’s favorite! He always picks those at Halloween.
Tiffany T says
Favorite is Sixlets I remember getting them when I was little at this place called Crossroads it is a whole area of buildings that are set to old times like the 20’s and 30’s I think and every year they have a haunted village for Halloween and I have been going since I can remember and I would always pick the sixlets to eat first. So i love everything having to add them in especially brownies or if I am decorating something then i love all the colors and how it just makes the world sparkle.

The Milk Chocolate Tool Kit brings back happy memories. I remember when my son was just a little guy & I bought that tool kit for him. He loved it so much that he didn’t want to eat it…he just wanted to keep it!! But he finally gave in & ate it.
My favorite is the Ovation® Dark Orange Break-A-Part, I grew up with these, every single Christmas.
Donna Jacoby says

The Peanut Butter Bars
I love them to snack on and sometimes make them my lunch.
Lisa Newton says
I love the sixlets. I remember the first time I had these was many years ago when I was packing the kids easter baskets and ate way too many. After that when I went to buy more for myself I could not find them anywhere apparently they were just out for the holidays. I finally found some at the gas station, so now whenever I see them I stock up. I do not know exactly why I like them I think its the choc,. And the crunch shell.
Michelle Castagne says
Niagara Chocolates cause I love chocolate!

i toured around sweet works. I’d like to try Key Lime Milk Chocolate Balls, I love key lime and love chocolate – this sounds like a really delicious combo.
Well there really wasent as many to choose from as I thought there would be but out of the ones listed I would pick nerds because it takes me back to my childhood days of trick or treating. I’ve always dumped all of the nerds in the little box in my mouth at once. The pink are the best!

I love the variety of jawbreakers available, especially the Boulders with different colors. Jawbreakers have been my favortite ever since grammar school – I loved biting into them (or attempting to, at least). I just couldn’t let them sit in my mouth that long and wait for them to melt away. They are tasty little candies and there’s always plenty of them to share.
