Grammie's Seven Layer Bars

Grammie's Seven Layer Bars
Prep 25 mins Bake 350°F 35 mins to 40 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 4 ounce stick unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs (from about 8 crackers pulsed in the food processor)
  • 1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1 12 ounce package butterscotch chips
  • 1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
  • 1 12 ounce package semisweet chocolate chips

Make It

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Pour the melted butter into the bottom of a 13 x 9-inch baking dish and swirl the pan so that the bottom is evenly coated with butter, paying special attention to the corners.

3. Sprinkle the graham cracker crumbs evenly over the butter and press down with your fingertips to form a very thin crust. Create even layers on top of the graham crackers with the remaining ingredients in this order: shredded coconut, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, sweetened condensed milk, and chopped pecans on top.

4. Bake the bars for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the ingredients have completely melted together to form one uniform batter.

5. Remove the pan from the oven and allow it to cool to room temperature. Then cover it with plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator for 2 hours, or until the bars have chilled and are completely solid.

6. Cut the bars into 2-inch squares with a sharp knife and store them in a container lined with waxed paper.
