Seven Layer Bars – A Four Year Old Can Make Them

Husband has always loved seven layer bars.  It’s kind of a bittersweet when we make delicious desserts (so good to the mouth, so bad to the hips).  His parents were coming into town so I thought it would be a perfect and delicious dessert that my four year old could help with.  Well, she ended up doing 90% of it and had so much fun!

I got the recipe here.

Here’s what ya need:

1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick)
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips (I used white chocolate chips instead)
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/3 cups shredded coconut

All you do is:

  •  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  • Place butter in 13 x 9 inch pan and melt in oven. Swirl to coat bottom and sides with butter.
  • Spread graham cracker crumbs evenly over bottom of pan. Layer chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and nuts over crumbs. Pour condensed milk over nuts. Sprinkle coconut over condensed milk.
  • Bake until edges are golden brown, about 25 minutes. Let cool before cutting into bars.
