Magic 7 layer bar recipe
I understand why these are called magic bars. They are truly magical. Each bite is magical, chocolatey, coconut goodness. They are a perfect weekend treat or addition to a Holiday cookie platter. They are also the perfect treat to make with children.
Coffee at home
Are you a coffee addict? Do you find yourself with a strong cup of Joe in your hand all day long? Think about this… How much money do you spend on the coffee you drink? I would say the average cup of flavored coffee you purchase in a coffee shop will run anywhere between $4 and $6 per cup.
Oh, yes, they do happen from time to time. However, most cheesecake emergencies can be either fixed or, at best, patched. You pull your cheesecake out of the oven, and it looks amazing. You set it on top of the oven to cool down a bit before you place it in the fridge. You go make yourself a cup of coffee…since you worked so hard preparing this cheesecake, you sure do deserve one. After you finished your caffeine-filled beverage, you walk over to the oven to find your cake is now filled with cracks from corner to corner. What do you do?
