7 Layer Bars

This is one of my favorite desserts because of its addictive sweetness and whenever I bake them I eat way more than I should.  Similar to these bars, you can substitute the ingredients easily as long as you keep the general proportions.  I followed Eagle Brand’s recipe but made a few adjustments.  These will be a crowd favorite every time and can be made in less than an hour! photo 7 Layer Bars 1/2 cups salted butter melted 2 packages graham crackers crushed into crumbs 2 cans sweetened condensed milk 2 cups butterscotch chips 2 cups white chocolate chips 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips 1 1/3 cups flaked coconut Butter a brownie pan and set your oven to 350 degrees.  Mix the graham crackers and butter together and press on the bottom of the pan.  Scatter the chips and coconut over the top.  Pour the sweetened condensed milk over to cover.  Bake until golden brown, around 30 minutes.  Let it cool if you have the patience because it makes it easier to cut.  However, they taste just as good warm and gooey!

Coconut Pretzel Bars

This dessert is a variation of 7 layer bars, but I deviated from the more traditional route because I did not have all of the necessary ingredients.  However, these were still delicious, and I love the added crunch and salty element the pretzels gave.  You can whip these together in under an hour and are one of the easiest baked desserts to make!
