Guava Magic Bars

Servings 20 Servings


  • cup graham cracker crumbs, about 12 whole crackers
  • cups roughly chopped mini pretzels, about 20 twists, plus more for garnish
  • ½ cup salted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • pinch kosher salt
  • ¾ cup white chocolate chips
  • 1⅓ cups sweetened shredded coconut
  • ¾ cup diced guava paste
  • 1 (14 ounces) can sweetened condensed milk
  • ¾ teaspoon flaky sea salt


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9×13″ baking dish with parchment paper.
  • Crush the Graham crackers and ½ cup of pretzels in a food processor, or smash the crackers in a plastic bag. Pour the melted butter and kosher salt onto the crumbs and mix until everything has been moistened. Transfer the crust into your prepared baking dish then press down smooth out with the bottom of a measuring cup.
  • Start layering by sprinkling the white chocolate chips on top of the crumbs, then the shredded coconut, remaining pretzel pieces, and the diced guava. Drizzle the sweetened condensed milk over the surface then add a few whole pretzels on top as garnish. Gently press down with a rubber spatula and transfer to the oven to bake for 30-35 minutes, or until lightly browned on top.
  • Cool in the pan for one hour before cutting into squares. Enjoy!


Spraying the pan with cooking spray helps the parchment paper stay in place.
