Pumpkin Magic Bars Recipe

Pumpkin Magic Bars Recipe
Pumpkin is one of the best and most popular flavors in the fall, and it is used in not only pie for Thanksgiving, but dozens of different cookies, bars, puddings, cakes, etc. Magic bars, also known as 7-layer bars, have been around for decades, and there are hundreds of variations that always seem to be coming out. These Pumpkin Magic Bars are my version of the classic bars with pumpkin stirred into the sweetened condensed milk, as well as pumpkin pie spice. These bars are very addicting, and are great served all through the fall season.
Another plus for these bars is that they keep very well, at least for a week or so, in an airtight container.
