7 Layer Bars

So this is pretty much my favorite cookie ever! You've all probably had them in some form. They have a bunch of names such as: 7 layer bars, hello dollies, and magic bars. I've always called them 7 layer bars and Ben and Jerry's call them that too...just sayin'.

I'd like to conclude this blog post with the reasons that I love these bars. I love coconut and these deliver coconut plus chocolate and butterscotch! I love cookie bars because you can assemble it so much faster than scooping cookies. Finally I love how super easy they are to make!! Good luck!

7 Layer Bars
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 1 sleeve plus 5 or 6 more crackers)
1/2 cup butter (melted)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 cup chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts work great)
1 1/2 cups shredded coconut (As I've mentioned before I use Baker's brand)
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk

Crush graham crackers into crumbs. Combine crumbs with melted butter until coated. Press crumb mixture evenly into the bottom of a 9x13 pan. Cover crust with chocolate and butterscotch chips, nuts and coconut. Drizzle the entire can of sweetened condensed milk evenly over the rest of the ingredients. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until the edges turn golden brown. Allow to cool and set for about 30 min. before cutting and eating.
