This Seven Layer Bar frosting is inspired by the classic Seven Layer Magic Bar! The frosting is loaded with chocolate chips, walnuts, caramel, coconut and more.


  • 4 sticks (2 cups) butter at room temperature
  • 5 C Powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp Heavy whipping cream

  • 1/3 C Milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 C Shredded coconut
  • 1/2 C Graham cracker crumbs

  1. Cut butter into pieces. Using the paddle attachment, whip butter for 3-5 minutes, scraping down the bowl occasionally. Beat until butter look light in color.
  2. Add 2 cups of powdered sugar and  vanilla extract  and mix on low speed until well combined. Beat for about 60 seconds.
  3. Next, add an additional 2 cups of powdered sugar along with the heavy whipping cream and beat on low speed until sugar is incorporated.
  4. Add the last cup powdered sugar along with sweetened condensed milk and caramel sauce . Beat on low until ingredients start to mix together. Increase speed to medium-high and beat for another 3-5 minutes to whip additional air into the frosting.
  5. In a large food processor, grind up the remaining ingredients: chocolate chips, coconut, walnuts and graham crackers. Grind into smaller pieces until is resembles a crumb-like texture.
  6. Add into the frosting and mix just until combined.
