Seven-Layer Bars

Seven-Layer Bars aka Magic Bars or Hello Dolly Bars are one of my all-time favorite desserts. Ever since a friend made them for me in high school, I have fallen in love with them. I love the graham cracker crust, the mix of coconut, chocolate chips and butterscotch chips, topped off with the sweetened condensed milk. This time I was short of butterscotch chips, so I added white chocolate chips and some milk chocolate pieces. These always turn out amazing, are impossible to mess up. This recipe came from “The Gathering of Friends” cookbook by Michelle Huxtable and Alyse Christensen. Enjoy!

Melt the butter in a 9 x 13 inch pan.

Sprinkle the graham cracker crumbs over the butter and press into pan.

Layer chocolate chips and butterscotch chips over crumbs.

Sprinkle coconut and nuts over chips.

Pour milk over the mixture and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

Cool and cut into squares.
