Here we are on Christmas Eve with the very last giveaway of 2015! This has been such a great year here at Food n’ Focus and there are some really exciting things coming in the new year.

Today is also the last day of our 12 Days of Christmas and I’ve got one of my favorite recipes to share with you. My mom always made these growing up and they were one of my favorite things. Although, she wasn’t a fan of the name ‘magic bars’ but it is pretty magical how easy they come together. If you’re a fan of chocolate, coconut, nuts and chocolate you’ll love these. I like to use walnuts but you can choose whatever kind of nut you’d like. If you’re not a fan of butterscotch, you can switch to 2 full cups of chocolate chips.

Magic Bars

I baked these in my brand new OXO Non-Stick Pro Cake Pan that was sent over a few weeks ago. I’ve owned a lot of cake pans in my time but nothing compares to this one. It’s scratch, stain, corrosion and abrasive resistant and is sleek and durable. They actually have an entire line of these beautiful products.

OXO has offered up their Non-Stick Pro 5 Piece Set to one lucky reader along with their 2 cup Squeeze and Pour Silicone Measuring Cup AND Baker’s Decorating Tool. A prize package worth over $100! Good luck!
