Raspberry Magic Bars

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 2 cups slivered almonds, divided
  • 3 1/2 cups shredded coconut
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 1/2 cups raspberry jam

Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a medium bowl, stir together the melted butter and cake mix to form coarse crumbs. Press the mixture into a greased 9x13" pan.

On top of this crust, sprinkle 1 1/2 cups of the chocolate chips and 1 1/2 cups of the slivered almonds. Pour the condensed milk evenly over the top. Sprinkle evenly with the coconut. Carefully spoon the jam over the top as evenly as possible. (You may wish to warm it briefly in the microwave to make it easier to spread.) Sprinkle the top of the bars with the remaining chocolate chips and almonds.

Bake the bars for 25-30 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Cool the bars completely before cutting them into bars. Store any leftovers covered in the refrigerator.
