Serve these bars warm with vanilla ice cream and topped with chocolate sauce and "magically" it becomes a fancy restaurant dessert.

This recipe is the same as the Magic Cookie Bar recipe on the back of the Eagle Brand container of sweetened condensed milk except that the Eagle Brand recipe uses 2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of 1 cup.
