Seven Layer Bars

Alex had been requesting these from me for several weeks before I finally got around to making them. For some reason the idea of nuts and coconut just really appealed to him. I made a few tweaks to this recipe, like always, to give it my own flair. It also helped that I didn’t have all the traditional ingredients like I thought I did. These would make an amazing and easy dessert for any Easter celebration this weekend.

This is a chocolate-peanut butter version of Seven Layer Bars. Since I only had chocolate graham crackers and peanut butter chips I decided it would be best just to embrace it and make these a combination of chocolate and peanut butter. Alex has requested that I get the ingredients for traditional seven layer bars so I’m sure you’ll see that in the future.

Seven Layer Bars

Ingredients

  • ½ Cup Butter (melted)
  • 1 ½ Cup Graham Crackers (1 packet, finely ground)
  • 1 Cup Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Cup Peanut Butter Chips
  • 1 Cup Roasted Peanuts
  • 1 (14oz) Can Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 1/3 Cup Shredded Coconut

Preheat the oven to 350 and grease a 9x13 glass dish.

In a small bowl combine the butter and graham crackers. Mix thoroughly then press into the bottom of the pan.

Layer with the chips, peanuts, condensed milk. Then sprinkle coconut over the top.

Bake for 25 minutes or until the coconut is golden brown and the sides are bubbly. Let cool completely before serving.
