Grammie's Seven Layer Bars! by "The Naptime Chef" - Kelsey Banfield

Check these out! I really wanted to share this recipe with you guys. Perfect for social gatherings! A great, tasty treat for everyone of all ages. Even picky kids will fall in love with these yummy bites. Way way better tasting than commercial chocolate bars. The consistency of the coconut worked very well with the sweetness on top. I wouldn't want to change the combination of the ingredients for that reason. So easy to make and so happy to find the recipe. The result was superb. I will sure make it again and again. Thank you Kelsey!

 Ingredients: (makes about 24 regular cookies)
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs (from about 8 crackers pused in the food processor)
  • 1 shrededed sweetened coconut
  • 1 (12oz) package semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 (12oz) package butterscotch chips
  • 1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350F.

Step 2:  Pour the melted butter into the bottom of a 13x9 inch bakery dish and swirl the pan so that the bottom is evenly coated with butter. paying special attention to the corners. sprinkle the graham cracker crumbs evenly over the butter and press down with your fingertips to form a very thin crust .
Step 3: 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.

Step 4: bake the bars for 35 mins, or until the ingredietns have completely melted together to form one uniform batter.

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

Step 6:  cut the bars into 2" squares with a sharp knife and store them in a container lined with waxed paper.
