Packed with layers upon layers of your favorite sweets and treats, these easy cookie bars are a must-make dessert. Commonly known as Seven Layer Bars, I call them seven layers of heaven!


  • 2 cups (205g) graham cracker crumbs
  • ½ cup (113g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup (224g) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup (112g) white chocolate chips
  • ½ cup (112g) butterscotch chips
  • ½ cup (58g) chopped walnuts or pecans
  • ¾ cup (180g) sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 can (14oz) sweetened condensed milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line the bottom of a 9×13” pan with parchment paper.
  2. Grind graham cracker sheets into a fine crumb using a food processor or blender. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs with the melted butter and stir until well combined. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  3. Top crust with both chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, nuts and half the coconut.
  4. Pour sweetened condensed milk over the top and sprinkle the remaining coconut over top.
  5. Bake at 350°F for 25 minutes until the top is golden brown. Cool completely before cutting.



  • To Store: Keep in an airtight container at room temperature or in the fridge. Bars last for up to 4 days on the counter & up to 7 in the fridge.
  • To Freeze: Freeze in an airtight container with parchment paper between layers to prevent sticking. Thaw in the fridge or on the counter before enjoying if desired.
  • Standard serving size is 15 bars but you could easily cut these smaller to serve or crowd or for a cookie exchange.
