Seven Layer Magic Bars
February 24th, 2012
Have you ever had a seven layer magic bar?
You will likely find them lurking around at potlucks, just waiting sneak in your mouth and attach themselves to your thighs and love handles.
“Oh, that seven layer magic bar!” you say.
So, you know what I’m talking about, then?
The last time I had one was in 2005, at the baby shower of a co-worker. Needless to say, the haunting memory of that fabulous treat has stuck with me for the past 7 years.
As luck would have it recently, I found myself with a pantry full of half opened bags of baking pieces. Suspiciously, these were all the pieces necessary for seven layer magic bars. And not wanting these to go to waste, I decided to make a batch. Now, there are a number of different layering techniques one can use to create this bar cookie. The trick is to finding the method that holds the graham cracker crust together.
Sweetened condensed milk
Semi-sweet chocolate chips
Butterscotch (but I only had white chocolate chips on hand)
Once I have the most effective layering technique, I’ll post the complete and proper recipe.
