No ImagePeanut Butter Pretzel Magic Bars

Did you make it? Rate it!

    Hello! I see some people had trouble with the crust falling apart. In a “traditional” magic bar you pour the condensed milk over the graham crackers before baking (which I think would *possibly* help hold it together more)? Why do you cook the pretzel crust beforehand instead of baking it all at the same time?

    This is the fifth attempt at this recipe. I love all the flavor combos, esp. the salty! But I have made magic bars since I was a sorority girl 30+ years ago, and these do not hold up.

    The base? Even after adding twice the butter and grinding those pretzels into a close copy of Graham crackers? Nope. No matter what I do with the cooking time I lose the outer borders to burn. I will continue to experiment, but as written, this does not work. I have several pics of the fails, but not sure how to post them here. I’ve been coming to Simply Recipes for years! This is truly the only recipe that has failed me.

    My crust completely crumbled. They were very tasty, but I don’t know why the bottom fell apart so badly :(

    This was my first foray into magic bars and they were absolutely delicious l! Very balanced flavors and super easy to make. We all loved them and will definitely make again soon. Thank you!

    This recipe looks wonderful! How would I go about making the recipe for a 9 x 13 pan? Measurements, etc. Thanks for your help.
