The best part about them though, is how easy they are! I couldn’t believe it when I found out. I don’t know about you, but things always feel so hectic at my house when we are getting ready for a party or gathering, and I love having recipes like these on hand that I know everyone will love but I don’t have to set aside all day (or even plan ahead) to make them!
Definitely one worth saving, that’s for sure! If you need some other delicious and super quick dessert ideas you are going to love our delicious cracker-roca or our brownie heath bar trifle or you can find our whole dessert gallery here.
Three cheers for easy and delicious recipes!
Seven Layer Bars
There is just something about that chocolate and coconut combination I have come to really love! They pair together so well. Obviously slathering anything in sweetened condensed milk is always a great idea, too.
When we were little and my mom was baking with condensed milk she would always give us a little spoonful and it was the best. I can’t help but think of my mom when ever I open up a can!
Magic Cookie Bar Recipe
You ready for this super easy recipe?
The first step is to gather all your ingredients! They are called seven layer bars because they have seven ingredients, but you can adapt as you see fit. Growing up we would leave out the nuts because my little sister was allergic.
Top Left – Crush graham crackers into crumbs or blend in blender and add to a 9×13 baking dish. Melt your butter and pour over graham crackers. Mix together with fork and then push down with clean fingers to form a crust in the bottom of the pan.
Top Right – Sprinkle your butterscotch chips over the crust.
Bottom Left – Then add your milk chocolate chips.
Bottom Right – Chop your walnuts and add those, too.
Top Left – Sprinkle coconut evenly over the top.
Top Right – Drizzle sweetened condensed milk as evenly as you can over the entire pan.
Bottom Left – If needed, use a spatula to smooth out condensed milk.
Bottom Right – Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
Pro Tip: This recipe is very adaptable. If you don’t want nuts, don’t use them. If you would rather use white chocolate chips then butterscotch, knock yourself out!
