I made these 7 layer bars over the weekend to bring to my friend’s house for Christmas. They are an ooey-gooey mess of sugary delight–layers of butter, chocolate and coconut blend together to make an irresistable combination. (I personally had a hard time resisting the urge to take another…and another…and another)
Though they are sinfully bad for you (I don’t even want to know the calorie count!), they are a huge crowd pleaser and quick and easy to make. They sure won’t help your resolution to ‘eat healthfully’ but hey, the new year hasn’t arrived yet! So go on, make a batch…betcha can’t eat just one :)
7 Layer Bars
Original recipe by Bernadette
Serving Size: 16
1/4 pound sweet butter
1 cup gluten free graham cracker crumbs
1 cup coconut, shredded
6 oz. chocolate chips
6 oz. butterscotch chips
15 oz. condensed milk, sweetened
1/2 cup nuts, chopped (I use a mixture of pecans and walnuts)
Spread melted butter in 9×13 pan. In this order, spread layers of: graham cracker crumbs, coconut, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, condensed milk and chopped nuts. For an ‘8th layer’, sprinkle some sea salt on top to give them some extra flair.
Bake for 35 minutes at 350. Let cool and cut into squares.
