Bar cookies are a favorite of mine because you basically put everything in the pan, bake it and you are finished. This particular bar is known by several names, 7 layer bars, Hello Dolly Bars or even Magic bars. They also happen to be the most Pinned recipe on Pinterest from this blog even after all these years!
I make these Magic Bars or to some Hello Dolly Bars or even 7 Layer bars,all the time! They are my sisters favorite so every time I see her I make a huge batch for her. They are the perfect treat warm with ice cream or completely cooled and served at a Christmas party or in cookie trays. Frankly you could give and entire try of these and I think your recipients would love it!
The recipe I use is adapted from Eagle Brand Milk I am sure there are many others but this is the one I always use.
1/2 cup melted butter
11/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs
1 cup of butter scotch chips
11/2 cups of coconut
Heat oven to 350. Melt butter and pour into a 9x13 pan. Mix in graham cracker crumbs. Pour condensed milk over the crumbs and then layer the remaining ingredients evenly. Bake for 25 minutes. Cool and cut!
Variations: You can add walnuts, or a combination of peanut butter chips and chocolate chips, or perhaps a medley of chocolate chips, including white, milk and dark, or perhaps dried cherries or cranberries and white or dark chocolate.
I personally like them the way I made them but I am certainly open to trying new things.
I hope you enjoy your day! If you make these bars and have a great variation, please leave it in the comment section, I would love to try it.
