Seven Layer Bars – A Four Year Old Can Make Them
by Dana Patterson on Sep 29, 2013 5
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.
Try them with your kids, they will love feeling like they are a baker! I had a lot of fun too!
