7-Layer Bars

Jump to Recipe

Happy Monday ya’ll. It’s been quite the dreary overcast day here so I’ve taken full advantage of it and spent my entire day inside baking. There is also a winter storm on the way so what better way to snuggle up with some hot cocoa and eat some sweets, am I right? If we’re being honest, I really don’t like winter, Like at all, but I’ll definitely partake in the fuzzy socks, hot cocoa, and movie nights on the couch during a snowfall. There’s just something so comforting about it. Especially with freshly baked 7-layer bars just waiting for me to dig in. Yes please.

Usually at this time of year I’ve already made 7-layer bars more times than I can count. However, due to the pandemic, I can’t say I’ve made them once this year. This recipe makes 24 large bars or 48 small bars so it’s a hefty recipe for just one person to indulge in. So, with Thanksgiving coming up this week, I thought why not make them today and be ahead of the game for Thursday. Kill two birds with one stone, so to speak. I get my sugar fix and my family gets theirs for Thanksgiving. Win Win.

These bars are crunchy, chewy, gooey, coconuty, chocolatey, sweet, and buttery all in one. 7 ingredients and 7-layers of flavor. You can’t beat these ones guys.
