Key Ingredients You’ll Need
Instant Chocolate Pudding: To make the brownie batter, you will combine the pudding with butter, sugar, and salt.

Add-ins: To make this filling festive, I like to add chocolate chips, marshmallows, coconut flakes, Holiday M&M’s,, and sprinkles.
How To Make Christmas Magic Bars
Step 1. Set the oven to 350 degrees and use parchment paper to line a 9×13-inch pan. Grease with baking spray. Add the butter, sugar, chocolate pudding, and salt into a heat-safe medium-sized bowl. Cook in 30-second intervals and mix until the butter and sugar are fully incorporated. It should appear grainy. One at a time, add in the eggs and vanilla and mix with a fork about 60 times to combine. Put in the flour and combine again. Pour into pan and put into the oven for 25 minutes to bake until the top is set and the inside is slightly jiggly.
Step 2. Put half of the chocolate chips, half of the marshmallows, half of the coconut flakes, and half of the M&M’s on top. Add in the condensed milk on top and finish off with the rest of the chocolate chips, marshmallows, coconut, M&M’s, and sprinkles. Place back into the oven for 23-27 minutes. Take it out and allow it to cool thoroughly before cutting the edges off if desired. Slice into bars and enjoy!
How To Store Christmas Magic Bars?
Place the leftover bars in an airtight container for the best storage method. You can store these at room temperature for 2-3 days. If you want them to last longer you can store them in the freezer and thaw them to room temperature before enjoying them.
