Ginger Magic

Ever since I first tasted TJ's ginger cats, I knew I wanted to use them in a spin on everyone's favorite Seven Layers.  I finally got around to it, and absolutely loved this variation!!



Ginger Magic Bars
Recipe by Shannon
Yield:  1 9"pan...  makes how ever many you want to cut ;)

4T butter, melted
3/4c TJ's ginger cat crumbs (or other ginger spice cookie)
3/4c dried cranberries
1/2c finely chopped crystallized ginger
3/4c white chocolate chips/chunks
1/2 can (fat free) sweetened condensed milk
1/2c unsweetened coconut

Preheat oven to 350deg.

Pour melted butter into an 8 or 9" sq pan, then sprinkle on cookie crumbs and pat around until evenly distributed.  Top with dried cranberries, ginger and white chocolate.  Drizzle sweetened condensed milk over bars, then add coconut.

Bake for 18-25min, until edges starting to brown a bit and sweetened condensed milk is a little bubbly.





Do yourself a favor and make these soon :)

I love this idea! I have been brainstorming a 7-layer recipe that's "heatlhy" with dark chocolate, coconut, nut butters, dried fruit, etc

These bars sound fantastic! Those ginger cookies are so tasty, and I love that you paired them with dried cranberries, crystallized ginger, and coconut. Great flavor combination, and I bet the texture of these bars is perfect.

The only thing I love more than a graham cracker crust is a ginger snap crust. Never seen magic bars with cranberry and white chocolate. Sounds great!

Those ginger cats are totally obscenely beyond addictive. As these bars are I'm sure! Awesome idea.

These sound absolutely scrumptious with ginger cat crumbs and crystallized ginger!

Do I smell a spring edition of cookie swap? I so want to try these!

Kerstin said...

Oh, they're like grown up magic bars - yum :) I've tried TJ triple ginger cookies (addictive!) but never the cats, so I'll have to look for them!
