Eagle Brand milk provided product and a grocery allowance to write this post, but all opinions are my own.

These five layer magic bars have been a go-to cookie recipe in our family for decades!  There are only 5 ingredients and the Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk tops it all off to make this the BEST, ooey-gooey bar cookie recipe!

I can remember many times that my mom has mixed up a batch of these bar cookies to give to a friend or take along to a potluck style meal.  There are ALWAYS many compliments, and the plate ALWAYS comes home clean!  On occasion she will add coconut and nuts to make a seven layer cookie, but my family prefers the basic five layers of dessert goodness.

As I purchased the ingredients I noticed that Eagle Brand milk is owned by Borden Dairy, which is owned by Dairy Farmers of America (DFA) which is a cooperative of farmers.  My family milked cows as I was growing up, and we were members of DFA because they have the staff to market milk to various processing plants.  Feeding, milking (two times a day, everyday, no matter what) and cleaning up after cows is a big job.  Lots of farmers, like my family joined together to invest in the cooperative to handle more of the milk marketing details.  We are still farmers, but we sold the dairy cows to another farmer about six years ago.

The food system is so big and complex, I always enjoy finding connections like this that make it all smaller.  And I’m always excited to share that when you buy food from big companies you are supporting local farming families.

Here are links to pick-up everything that is needed on Amazon:  Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk, semi-sweet chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, graham cracker crumbs and butter.
