Peanut Butter Pretzel Caramel Magic Bars

Peanut Butter Pretzel Caramel Magic Bars - made using Reese's & Reese's Pieces
So I’ve been seeing these “Magic Bars” on a lot of my favorite food blogs and didn’t quite know what to expect. I think I’ve only heard of a dessert being magical if they had a certain ingredient added to them…wink,wink :) But I was pretty sure these bars didn’t have that in them, so I still didn’t understand why they were called Magic Bars – that is until I made some and tried them myself.

These were absolutely delicious and, actually, really easy to put together. The beauty of these bars is that most everything comes straight out of the package and layered in the baking pan. If you can make a cake using a box mix, I guarantee you can make these bars.

I love how you can switch Magic Bars up how ever you want. With so many different cake mixed out there, the possibilities are endless.

I used Reese’s Pieces eggs as the topping, but you could use regular Reese’s pieces just the same. And, I also used Reese’s eggs (which may be my favorite chocolate easter candy…Starburst Jelly beans are my number 1!), but you could use regular Reese’s as well.

Ingredients (24 bars)
  • 1 yellow cake mix
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups pretzels
  • 1/3 cup caramel topping
  • 1 package Reese’s peanut butter chocolate eggs
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 oz.)
  • 1 cup Reese’s Pieces candies
Instructions
In a mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, butter, egg, and vanilla. Mix until a soft dough forms. Press the dough into the bottom of a 9×13 pan that has been sprayed with non stick spray.
Top dough with a layer of pretzels (I used Snyder’s Snaps pretzels). Then, spoon the caramel topping over the pretzels.
Next, unwrap the chocolate eggs and place in an even layer on top of the pretzels and caramel. Spread the condensed milk over the top. Crush remaining pretzels and sprinkle evenly on top along with the Reese’s pieces candies.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Let cool completely before cutting.

I can attest that these bars also travel well because I brought them to work to share and I even brought them on a plane with me and they held up very well.

    Couple of mistakes….it says vanilla in the directions but no mention of vanilla in the ingredients list. Also says bake for 30-25 minutes. I assume that is supposed to be 20-25?

    Is there anything you can use instead of the Reese’s eggs? Since it is not Easter season anymore? Reese’s minis?
