Recipe: 7 Layer Magic Bars


I love when a new recipe just falls into my lap, especially one as delicious as this. My friend Sierra, who is a standard fixture in my home and life, made this for me the other day. It was incredible. I was fighting people for the last bite. This is a crazy simple dessert, but crazy delicious. Coconut, butterscotch, condensed milk (The Russians favorite), nuts, and a touch of chocolate combine for a variety of flavors and textures. Super sweet but addicting. I urge everyone to try it.

Thanks, Sierra. Now I’m never gonna be the same again. She was even nice enough to send along the instructions on how to make these delicious bars her way.


1/2 cup unsalted butter [$2]
1 1/2 cups graham-cracker crumbs [$2]
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips [$3]
1 cup butterscotch chips [$3]
1 cup chopped nuts (walnuts or pecan) [$5]
1(14 oz.)can sweetened condensed milk [$2]
1 1/3 cup flaked coconut[$3]

Preheat oven to 350.
Place butter in the bottom of a 13 x 9 inch pan, and let it melt completely. Mix in graham-cracker crumbs and press evenly and firmly to the bottom of the pan. Layer chocolate chips, butterscotch chips and nuts. Cover evenly with condensed milk and then top with flaked coconut.
Bake at 350F for 20 minutes, or until coconut appears toasted / golden brown.
Let cool, cut into bars and enjoy!
