Seven Layer Bars

These are called seven layer bars because ingredients are layered, not mixed. You don't even need a bowl just the pan you are using. These have to be the easiest bars I've ever made. I've been making these for years, not because they are easy but because they are so good!

Layer one: melted butter

Layer two: graham crackers

Layer three: chocolate chips

Layer four: butter scotch chips

Layer five: coconut

Layer six: pecans

Layer seven: sweetened condensed milk

Bake for 25 minutes.

After bars cool, cut into bars. I like to use a pizza cutter, works great.

* 1/2 cup butter
* 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
* 1 cup butterscotch chips (6 oz)
* 1 cup chocolate chips (6 oz)
* 1 1/3 cups coconut, flaked
* 1 cup pecans, chopped
* 1 (14 ounce) can Eagle Brand Condensed Milk, Sweetened

1. Preheat oven to 350 (325 for glass dish). In 13x9" baking pan, melt butter in oven.
2. Sprinkle crumbs over butter. (I like to mix the crumbs and butter in the pan and pat evenly)
3. Top with next 4 ingredients in order listed.
4. Pour sweetened condensed milk over all.
5. Bake 25 minutes or until lightly browned.
6. Cool.
7. Cut into bars.
8. Store covered at room temperature.
