How To Make Magic Bars!

{picture of the regular ones, it will still look something like this}

This is a healthier recipe for the regular magic bars. 
Yield: 18 small squares
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

What you Need:
1 1/2 cups raw pecans
12 medjool dates (pits removed)
1 cup vegan sweetened condensed milk
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
3/4 cups chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350.

In a food processor combine the pecans, sea salt and dates until you see the mixture clump together. 

Line an 8/8 glass baking dish, with parchment paper. Make sure you leave enough paper to stick out the sides. Gently press the pecan mixture into the glass baking dish. Make sure the bottom of the baking dish is covered with the pecan mixture. Press down well.

Next, add the vegan sweetened condensed milk. Spread it all over the top of the pecan mixture. Lastly top the bars with the coconut, chips, or whatever else you like. 

Use a fork to gently press the toppings into the condensed milk. 

Bake in the oven for about 20-25 minutes. 
Wait until the mixture has completely cooled before removing from the baking dish and slicing into squares.
Store these bars in the fridge in an airtight container. I suggest placing a sheet or parchment paper in between each bar so they don't stick to each other. They should last a couple weeks in the fridge. You may even be able to freeze them. Enjoy!

How To Make a Easy Friendship Bracelet

Friendship Bracelet
Most friendship bracelets seem like they take forever to make,
                         well, here's one that's super quick, easy, and cute! Enjoy!

Take the string and fold it in half. 

Have your BFF help you by twisting the end of the string one way as you twist the other. Go different ways.

Take both ends and it will automatically twist itself together. You may need to help it.

Tie off the ends and wear them till they break! ;)
