Magic: Possessing distinctive qualities that produce unaccountable or baffling effects
The ability for a pie to exist one minute and be gone the next, that seems like magic to me.
The ability for a dessert to call your name and whisper sweet words into your ear, I’d call that magic.
The ability for a dessert to sit on your counter one day and your butt the next, yes magic.
All of those elements make this cookie bar turned pie magic.
I’ll be honest, I only like my version of magic bars. No coconut, no nuts, just gooey, chocolaty, chewy and delicious. And so in my Magic Pie, that is what you get: graham cracker crust and a sweet oozing filling made up of dark chocolate, milk chocolate and toffee. Don’t tell me this doesn’t pull at your sweet tooth for an extra slice bite. I made this pie at about 3pm one afternoon… by midnight it was gone. And here is a little secret, Matt thought it was too sweet.
I’ll let you come to your own conclusions.
Start with a pre-made or baked graham cracker crust and pour sweetened condensed milk into the shell
Arrange dark chocolate kisses
Sprinkle with toffee bits
Sprinkle on the milk chocolate chips
Bake for about 25 minutes or until filling appears set and has bubbled around the edges; allow to cool before slicing
Next time I’m going to sprinkle pretzel pieces on top immediately after baking to add a salty crunch to the pie The Edy’s slow churned Caramel Delight ice cream was the perfect complement to this pie
Yield: 6-8 slices
- 1 pre-made or baked 8-inch graham cracker pie crust
- 1 cup sweetened condensed milk (I used fat free)
- 21 dark chocolate Hershey kisses (~1 cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips would also work)
- 1/3 cup toffee bits
- 1/3 cup milk chocolate chips
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
- Pour sweetened condensed milk into shell pie
- Arrange dark chocolate kisses along on top of the milk
- Sprinkle with toffee bits and milk chocolate chips
- Bake on a baking sheet for about 25 minutes or until filling appears set and has bubbled around the edges
- Allow to cool before slicing and serve with a scoop of ice cream

I’ll let you in on a secret- I didn’t like the crust (that’s what I get for using a healthier pre-made) so I left that behind and ate all some of the filling. Have you ever picked out the parts of a dessert you like and gotten rid of the rest?
Yep I’d eat that entire pie. And like magic would not be able to zip my pants the next day.
oh oh it’s magic! you know…
Um, that looks so good! My Aunt was just telling me about a recipe she makes similar to this.
I love that it has whole kisses inside of it!! Looks magical :)
To create gooey and too sweet IS magical! Perfect!
TOO SWEET! What kind of man did you marry? If you ever need help polishing these off, I live just a ten minute cab ride away. Hint hint.
I know, right?! He did eat his piece, though:-) You officially have an open invitation to come over for baked goods!
Oh boy, I think I might have to go make this right now. Although, then there would be some “magic” happening in my house. Not the right kind of magic, I want my fat to “magically” disappear, and I’m thinking this pie wouldn’t achieve that ;)
Wow does that look good! My husband often thinks things are too sweet that I think are just right. A matter of opinion I guess :)
Oh my goodness this looks delicious! The addition of toffee. Words can not express how much I want to try this!
This would definitely NOT be too sweet for me! But my husband would say the same as yours :) I love that you used some lightened up ingredients…I’m salivating over here!
Oh my stars I’m drooling over how amazing this pie looks. I need to make this asap!
I’m sure the pretzel bits on top would make it even more magical :) Or perhaps some flaky sea salt. Thanks for sharing!
Oh yes, love that idea!
Not only does it look delicious but I laughed out loud at your definition of magic pie :-)
I am totally that annoying person who picks out the best parts of the Chex mix or my favorite part of a dessert and leaves the rest. In fact, Joey and I actually split a piece of cake most of the time because I like the frosting and he likes the cake. The pie looks delish!
Sounds like you two are a perfect match:-)
Are you kidding me? Magic, heck yes. Magically disappearing deliciousness!
Oh man, I need this right now! ;) I am bookmarking this, it looks super easy and delicious!
This is the meaning of the word brilliant. I heart it.
That is some evil magic, girl! But I’ve never met a dessert too sweet for me so I’m sure I’d enjoy polishing off a slice or two myself.
It was a bit too sweet, but I still finished my slice – I mean c’mon…
I like when you add M&Ms to it! Though the colors melt together and the pie turns ugly.
that is one sinful pie…love it, lol
Holy smokes! Look at that slice of heaven! I wish I had a very large piece of this right now!!! Looks awesome!
oh my – eating that is a magical experience, I’m sure!
Believe me I could make magic with this and make it disappear very fast right into my stomach!Looks terrific!
its magical! I agree, sometimes its better to use the high calorie stuff..tastier
Oooh, this pie does look magical!
Yes, this really is magic. Undeniable magic. I’m a believer :)
I love this! I’m not a huge fan of coconut in magic bars, so your adaptation is totally welcome by me :) And I have a really hard time calling anything “too sweet” so I’m in! Could magic land a slice of this in my kitchen? :)
I love the simplicity of the recipe. Looks scrumptious. It would do a fast disappearing act in my house.
This pie does sound like magic – amazing! :)
I love the title of this post, instantly intrigued by what could be so awesome. I think this pie fits the bill, can’t wait to try the magic!
That looks awesome!
Magic Pie is what I consider the most ideal dessert. Photos make my mouth water.
YOU ARE MY HERO! I just found this on Pinterest and will be making it tonight!
Happy Holidays! wendy b.
