Seven Layer Bars

MMMMM...another Christmas cookie recipe! I found this one in the coupon section of the paper one year. I made it that year as an experiment, thinking that I would like them but because they were so rich I wouldn't eat the whole batch in one or two days. HA, YEAH, RIGHT. They are RICH, very rich, sweet, decadent and delicious. However, I caution you, they are addicting and very hard to stop eating! I modified the recipe since the original didn't seem to fill the spaces well. As with any recipe, I tweek it to make it to my liking. My husband loves these cookies.

Seven Layer Bars

3/4 Cup butter
2 1/4 Cup grahm cracker crumbs
1 1/2 Cups chocolate chips
1 1/2 Cups butterscotch chips
2 Cups coconut (this can be adjusted a little, we like coconut here)
1 1/2 Cups sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 Cups chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350.

Place butter in a 13 X 9" pan and place in the oven for it to melt. Swirl and coat butter to cover the pan. Spread grahm cracker crumbs over the bottom of the pan and press into the butter. Layer chocolate chips over the crumbs, then butterscotch chips, then the nuts. Pour the sweetened condensed milk over the nuts - try to get as evenly as possible so that almost the entire top is covered (there will be "holes" but make sure they aren't more than a 1/4 inch or so). Sprinkle coconut evenly on top and slightly press into the condensed milk layer.

Bake about 25 minutes or until the coconut is starting to turn golden brown and everything is melted. Let cool COMPLETELY before cutting into bars...and make them like 1" X 2" because these are so rich...this may take a while!

I store mine in an airtight container in the fridge. I like how the cold makes everything hard and gives it a candy bar feel to it. They also freeze really well, so you could make a whole batch and freeze half for another time of year also.
