Believe it or not, I’d baked so many goodies before our family reunion weekend that one treat remained in the freezer after everyone was gone! So, I decided to take them to a baseball game tailgate party we attended Saturday afternoon with a bunch of our fun friends. To make them more finger-food friendly, I cut and rewrapped the bars individually in pinked parchment, tied them with baker’s twine, put them in a bowl, and returned them to the freezer until time to leave (since Kansas is HOT this time of year!). Then I added a little sign . . . and it worked! ♥
Seven-Layer Cookie Bars
Melt 1 stick of butter in a 9 x 13 inch pan. Then add the following layers:
- 1 cup of graham cracker crumbs
- 1 small package of sweetened, flaked coconut
- 1 small package of chocolate chips
- 1 small package of butterscotch chips
- 1 can of sweetened condensed milk
- 1 cup of chopped nuts
Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Cool and cut into bars.
Wish I got to attend the baseball game and enjoy these little goodies! I’m sure they were enjoyed by all! Clever idea! Try to keep cool in Kansas! It was 107 today in California!
I wish you were there too, Vickie! And you are WAY hotter than we are this summer! Actually, except for a couple of days at 100 degrees, we’ve backed off to 90 . . . or even in the 80s sometimes! So I know we’re very lucky right now! 🙂
This is so cute! I’ve been making signs for potlucks for a little while now. Everyone is concerned about nuts and gluten…
That’s a good idea! And I DO love potlucks! 🙂
What A loving heart Katherine! I’m believing they will forever remembered you for your generosity. Your recipes are always yummy and I’m going to try this one also. Be A Blessing because you’re Blessed. Mtetar
Thank you, Mtetar . . . I hope you enjoy it! 🙂
Awe that’s awesome. thanks for sharing the recipe as well. they spund super yummy and great packaging and sign. 🙂
Thank you! They were so delicious that I musn’t make any again for a LONG time! 🙂
This is NOT good! It’s 10:30 at night and you show me these!!!!! I love them…with a good cup of coffee…awesome!!!!!!
Oops . . . 🙂 But yes . . . with coffee . . . mmmmmm!!! 🙂
“And visions of sugarplums danced in their heads”……my overnight thoughts/dreams. Had to get up and bake something this morning! Something with butter and sugar!!! LOL!!!!!
Oh great…more temptation. I had no will power over the last temptation, and if these are just as good…well…woe is me!
I know . . . I’ve been on a baking spree lately! But now that it’s just Dave and me, I’ll hang up my apron for awhile! 🙂
Lucky for me, I’ve got grandchildren visiting in another week. I’ll be putting on my apron, and I think they will like these bars. Thanks!
Delicious, thank you for sharing the recipe 🙂
You’re very welcome, Izabel! 🙂
Oh my gosh Katherine I’m going to have to try those and your idea of wrapping them individually is so cool looking and the sign is just as adorable as you are. Thanks for sharing.
Awww . . . thank you! I hope you’ll get to try them sometime! 🙂
I love the way you’ve presented these!
Thank you! It really worked out great, so I’ll definitely try this again for picnics! 🙂
yummy, delicious Katherine, I really like that you wrapped these! 🙂
Thank you, Ingrid! I have lots of this parchment (because it’s great fingerpainting paper!) so I finally used it for something food related! 🙂
Look at that presentation!!! You are the Master! I am going to copy this for our Christmas Eve celebration and use Christmas ribbon for the wrapping. Thank you AGAIN for a glorious idea!
Well, I like THAT idea! Now I’m going to do that for Christmas, too! 🙂
What a perfectly cute presentation. Love it. We’ve been talking about Kansas weather for weeks now. We have humidity off the charts and are all remarking about it when we try to work outside. We thought we left it in the Midwest but it followed us. 🙂
We’ve actually backed off to between 80-90 degrees and a light wind . . . perfect summer weather! I hope it lasts . . . and we’ll try to share it with you! 🙂
have heard of these…but, never made …will have to try…cute packaging…I really like doing things like this…just makes it more appealing
They really are easy to make . . . my favorite kind of recipe! 🙂
The way you wrapped them is adorable!
Thank you, Chelsey! 🙂
What a delightful treat for your tailgate party friends! I’ll bet there aren’t any left! 🙂
You’re right . . . the bowl is empty! 🙂 And I mustn’t make any more for a LONG time because they’re a little addictive! 🙂
Oh Katherine, these look delicious! Thanks for sharing!
You’re very welcome, Valerie! 🙂
I have always wanted to do a blog post and tell everyone to submit their favorite recipes to me and I would create a nice “Bloggers Best Recipes” PDF to share with everyone. That would be fun to do and I bet I would get a huge participation!
I LOVE that idea! You should go for it! 🙂
I need to work on that as I think it will be a huge hit. I would require everyone to send along a good photo of the finished item too so I can place it next to the recipe. I can see a VOL. I, VOL. 2, etc. as this could catch on for sure!
Definitely! There’s nothing like an amazing cookbook put together by friends!!! 🙂
Ooooh, I agree!
Wow! those sound super easy and yummy! and the way you packaged them makes them seem more irresistible 🙂
Thank you, Pam! They were a hit . . . I’ll have to make them again for my next picnic! 🙂
I’ll be making them myself…hehehehe 🙂
Love how you wrapped these treats! Will have to try!!
Thank you, Susanna! I hope you love them! 🙂
They do look good in more ways than one K 😉
Very smart but simple presentation in their wrappers with bakers twine ! Clever K .
Thank you, Ms. Poppy!!! 🙂
