Classic Seven Layer Bars have 7 layers of sweet, crunchy, and chewy flavors! Studded with walnuts, coconut, and all the chips, these are always a favorite!
You may know them as Magic Bars, Dream Bars, or Seven Layer Bars. However you name them, the results are the same:
7 layers of tasty flavors that everyone wants, craves, and devours.
I have to say… these bars are everything you’re imagining them to be. And probably more.
One of my favorite desserts of all time is Seven Layer Bars, aka Magic Bars. Or Hello Dolly Bars as they’re sometimes called, depending on what potluck or bake sale you’re at.
All the textures and layers of flavors just do it for me. The more, the merrier, and these cookies are loaded with graham crackers, two kinds of baking chips, and coconut. The coconut almost acts like oats would, providing heartiness, chewiness, and plenty of texture.
The ingredients that match up are butter, graham cracker crumbs, shredded coconut, chocolate chips, and butterscotch chips.
I’ll always have a soft spot for the original bars, but these 7 layer bars have my attention now. Soft, chewy, melty, tons of textures and flavors.
