#CIJCookieExchange – Seven Layer Bars

Contributor post by Alicia of AliciasFindings

Let’s make Seven Layer Bars – Recipe from designbcb

1. What is your recipe?

1.5 cups graham crackers
1/2 c. melted butter
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 cup chocolate chips
1 1/3 cup flaked coconut
1 cup chopped nuts (I use pecans)

traditionally, butterscotch chips are added but don’t care for those, hence the two cups of chocolate chips.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (325 degrees F for glass baking pan).

In small bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs and butter; mix well.

Press crumb mixture firmly on bottom of 13×9-inch baking pan.

Layer evenly with remaining ingredients; press down firmly with fork.

Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over mixture.
Bake 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool. Cut into bars or diamonds. Store covered at room temperature.SLB

2. What is it about this cookie that you love?

I love these because they are so flavorful and rich. When I was younger, I could eat a ton of them. Now one or two will go a long way for me.

3. How did you learn to make this cookie?

I first learned about these in college and spent the summer making them at home. Became my favorite cookie to make because they weren’t a lot of work.

4. Please share a story or memory to go along with the cookie.

I made these again recently and for some reason, they didn’t come out right and my husband asked, “Are you sure this is the right cookie?” I will make them again and get it right!

5. What are your social media sites?
