This recipe was a strange experiment involving Fig Newtons (the kind filled with fruit other than fig, in this case) and Magic Cookie Bar toppings. The bars were actually better than the picture would have you believe.
Fruit Newton Magic Cookie Bars
45 Fig, Strawberry or Raspberry Newtons
1 (14 oz) can Eagle Brand
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup pecan pieces
8 regular or Golden Oreos, broken up (not crushed) — optional
1/4 cup shredded, sweetened coconut (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 13×9 inch baking pan with parchment.
Lay Newton cookies side by side across bottom of lined dish, packing closely together. Pour condensed milk over Newtons. Stir together chocolate chips, pecan pieces, broken up sandwich cookies (if using) and coconut (if using).
Bake for 22-25 minutes. Let cool, then chill for a while. Cut into 24 bars
