Seven-Layer Cookie Bars


Cookie Bar

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! β™₯

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.

    • 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! πŸ™‚

  5. 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. πŸ™‚
