My friend, Heather, posted her 7 Layer Bar recipe, which is fantastic! I wanted to make this, but I did it with a twist. I think there are many possibilities for 7 Layer Bars. Who knows. There may be another recipe post down the road with different ingredients. You just can't go wrong with sugar and fat!
1/4 Cup (4 Tablespoons) of Butter, browned (You can just melt it, if you prefer not to brown it.)
1 14oz can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/2 can (2.5 oz) of Evaporated Milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 Cup of Vanilla Wafers, crushed
1 scant Cup of Pretzels, crushed *Refer to photo below for my scant
1 1/2 Cups of shredded coconut
1 1/2 Cups Chocolate Chips
1/2 Cup Butterscotch Chips
1 Cup Pecans, chopped
Preheat oven to 325. Place the butter in a 9" x 13" pan. Place in oven. While butter is browning, mix the two milks together in a bowl. Add vanilla and mix. When butter is bubbly, foamy, and part brown (not burnt), take out of the oven. Layer the vanilla wafers, pretzels, coconut, and chocolate and butterscotch chips. Pour the milk mixture over the top covering the entire dish. Add chopped nuts on top.
Bake for 20-25 mins.
