Seven Layer Magic Bars

This is one of those Christmas recipes that will never fail you. It is quick and delicious. I can't believe how fast it is to make! When you have a million different things going on at once a recipe like this is heaven sent!

Seven Layer Magic Bars

  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) of butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/3 cups flaked coconut
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Line a 9X13 pan with aluminum foil, making sure to cover the sides well. Cut the butter into 8 pieces and lay them in the pan.

Place the pan in the oven and let the butter melt. It should only take a few minutes.

Sprinkle the graham cracker crumbs over the butter evenly.

Pour the sweetened condensed milk over the graham crackers.

Now sprinkle the butterscotch chips.

Add the chocolate chips (I used a combination of semi-sweet chocolate chips and swirl chocolate & white chocolate).

Add the coconut layer.

Last but not least, add the pecans to the top.

Press gently down with a fork on the entire surface. You want to pack it down to make sure everything is firmly packed.

Bake for 25 minutes or until the top is lightly brown.

Cool and then cut into pieces. You should be able to lift the entire batch from the pan with the foil and then gently peel back the sides. Cut into desired size bars.

Store in a airtight container at room temperature.
