Seven-layer Bars. I know that it has been a long winter for us here in Utah. We have been in our home for about 20 years and so we decided that it was time for a little updating of a few rooms.

So I decided our hard work called for an extra special treat. These seven-layer bars really hit the spot. They were a bigger success than the doors and a lot easier to make and deal with.

I love the flavor of the butterscotch chips and the coconut, mixed with the pecans. They are wonderful to make and there isn’t any mixing. Just sprinkle them in the pan and bake. I hope you will enjoy these as much as we do!

 

What Ingredients Do I Need For Seven-Layer Bars?

  • Butter
  • Graham cracker crumbs
  • Shredded coconut
  • Semisweet chocolate chips
  • Butterscotch pieces
  • Sweetened condensed milk
  • Nuts (chopped); I use pecans

 

How Do I Make Seven-Layer Bars?

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • In the oven melt butter in a 9″ X 13″ pan.
  • Sprinkle crumbs evenly over butter; lightly tap the sides of the pan to distribute crumbs evenly. Then sprinkle the coconut, chocolate and butterscotch pieces on top of the graham cracker crumbs.
  • Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over the top.
  • Sprinkle the nuts on and press them lightly on top of the mixture.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Cool in the pan.
  • Cut and enjoy.
  • Store in an airtight container.

 

We cleaned and sanded some of our doors. We cut base boards because we had carpet in place of the base boards in most of our bedrooms. We borrowed a sprayer and my husband got to work spraying the doors and base boards. We finished at 11:00 pm.

When he went out to check and see how good they all looked, I heard a strange noise—“Hmmm”. I thought, that didn’t sound good. So when he came in and told me that the paint had ran on the doors and we would have to get 4 new doors; I thought, forget it.

So we grabbed a few rollers and got to work. I must say that they turned out pretty good with the exception of a few spots. However, there is nothing quite like a new coat of paint! All is well that ends well.

 

Are Seven-Layer Bars Really This Easy to Make?

  • I love that making them doesn’t even require a mixer!
  • Everything is literally just added to a baking dish and sprinkled or poured one layer after another.
  • The only thing that even requires a little mixing is the graham cracker and butter.

 

So I decided our hard work called for an extra special treat. These seven-layer bars really hit the spot. They were a bigger success than the doors and a lot easier to make and deal with.

However, I am trying to paint my computer room, I have the paint bought, and I just need to get rid of some junk! That seems to be the hardest part of getting the room ready. We have had the paint for about 3 month, and it just seems like things keep coming up.

Another thing is that some of the things that I have are for taxes, if it was up to me I would hide the stuff in the attic. My husband wants to make a real library out of our office, I am okay with this, but we have some books that I would like to let go of.

Can I Use Pre-Crushed Graham Crackers?

  • Yes! If you buy the boxed graham cracker crumbs you won’t even need to crush up the graham crackers yourself.

 

It seems that so many of the books we have already read and that there are always new books coming out! I do not know if we will go back and read some of the books from 30 years ago, but you never know.

One day, we just might retire and sit in our rockers and read all the books in our house. It seems like we have more time to be on social media than we have time to read the books that are in our home.

I got this recipe from a book that my mother gave me many years ago. One thing that I can tell you is that these are addicting! Loaded with different chips that give you one fantastic flavor all together! And they do taste wonderful with coconut, even though I am not really big on coconut!

These bars come together so quickly and I hope one day to try using mint chips in place of the butterscotch! I am a big mint fan and I think that Seven Layer Bars with mint just might be a big hit! What are some ideas that you think might be wonderful?
