Marshmallow Pretzel Chocolate Magic Bars

Magic bars are truly magic!  They bake up into gooey, creamy, delicious bars! 

So good… Like, make yourself sick good!   

Do I have your attention now?  You know you want a bite! 

These Marshmallow pretzel chocolate magic bars are lightened up.  Made with only four Tablespoons of butter!  Applesauce is used to take place of some butter.  You can’t tell that these are lightened up at all! 


The first thing to do is add the melted butter, applesauce, and chocolate cake mix together and press into a foil lined 13 x 9 inch pan.  Sprinkle the pretzels, butterscotch chips and the semi sweet chocolate chips over top.  Follow with the marshmallows.  I used the large marshmallows and tore them in half.  

Now the magic part..  Pour the sweetened condensed milk over the top.  The sweetened condensed milk brings the ingredients together and forms a delicious caramel layer.  Good Stuff!  

To add some color, we will add mini m&m’s!  

Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes.  Allow to completely cool before removing from pan and cutting. 

Next time, I would break up or crush the pretzels for easier cutting.  

If you’re looking for a quick and delicious treat to bake, try these.   

I made these bars for a summer BBQ, but we never made it.  We were so wore out from a BBQ the day before.  We ended up staying home and had a whole batch of these staring at me.  I had my share of these bars and needed to give them away.  I’m pretty sure that I had a plate of these for lunch, that day.  Don’t tell anyone!  I know you would do the same if you were put in that situation.  I just know.
