This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Holiday Baking at Publix. The opinions and text are all mine.

Is it even a holiday if no baking is involved! Not only does it make for delicious results, but it's a great way to bond with family. Baked goods are also such a fun gift idea to give to friends, family, neighbors and more. These Christmas Magic Bars are the perfect festive way to celebrate the season. It's time to stock up on go-to baking ingredients available at Publix like Eagle Brand® Sweetened Condensed Milk and Country Crock Spread! Let's get baking!

Magic Christmas Bars

Are there baked goods that you look forward to every year? Recipes that you find yourself making over and over again? All of these delicious goods are a huge part of memory making. That's why I wanted to share a recipe for Christmas-inspired Magic Cookie Bars. I remember these being such a huge hit at holiday parties when I was growing up. I even remember the first time that I tried them. They are like a bite of heaven.
