7 Layer Bars — aka Hello Dollies


Sorry for leaving you lovelies for so long. I ‘m sure you’ve been starving (<–yes, I went there) for yummy things to make. I’ll try to catch up on a few recipes I’ve been holding onto for far too long, so prepare yourself for a flood (more likely a light drizzle) of recipes coming your way soon.

My grandma used to make these bars every Christmas and so they’ve always held a special place in my heart. They’re extremely easy to make and very delicious and now since it’s fall (which I’m finally ready to admit), I can begin my multi-month obsession with baking unhealthy things. Hallelujah for the season of leggings and baggy sweaters! 


1.5 cups graham cracker crumbs

1/4 cup white sugar

1/2 cup melted butter

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1/2 -1 cup butterscotch chips (optional; vary according to your tastes)

1/2 -1 cup white chocolate chips (optional; vary according to your tastes)

1-1/3 cup flaked coconut

1 cup chopped pecans

1 (14-oz) can sweetened condensed milk


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine the graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter. Press into the bottom of an 13×9 inch baking pan. Layer the chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, white chocolate chips, coconut and pecans over the crumbs.
