Hello Moms, Dads, Fellow Burlington Friends ::
Anyone else feeling the March entrapment? Where you feel like a fool for thinking spring has sprung from ONE forty degree day? We all should know better by now when that happens … snow is still possible. twenty degrees is still possible. a mild case of depression is inevitable.
For me, this is a time that calls for nothing more than flat out sweet goods, merely to take the edge off. The recipe I plan to share today may be an oldie but goodie in your book but for me it was MY VERY FIRST TIME making these bars of greatness.
The steps are simple and the outcome is outrageous. It is perfectly paired with small children, a Friday night, a good movie, and a cozy fire. And I guess we will put the homemade ice cream sandwiches on the back burner for now…
7 Layer Bars
1 package (9 crackers) of honey graham crackers
1 stick of unsalted butter
1 cup of finely chopped walnuts
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cups butterscotch chips
1 cup toasted coconut
1 can (14 oz) condensed milk
spread coconut on baking sheet and toast in a 350 degree oven for a few minutes. I say about 5 but watch closely so it does not burn. set aside.
crush crackers into a nice powder
mix in melted butter and stir until absorbed in cracker
spread mixture on a baking sheet lined with foil and sprayed with Pam
I pressed it out until it covered the bottom nicely… first picture in photo above.
Layer with (in this order ) walnuts, semi chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, toasted coconut, condensed milk.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 25 minutes or until top is browned.
Cool for 2 hours on a wired rack in the foil
cut, serve, enjoy.
Pray for spring 😉
