Christmas Seven Layer Bars


IMG_1776Hello all–  These are my problem cookies!  First of all, they just don’t make a pretty photo so you have no idea how yummy they really are.  And secondly, I have a pan-full in my fridge and just about every single time (which is often) I walk into my kitchen, I stop and eat just one!  If I weigh 15 pounds more by New Years it’s the fault of these cookies (or could the fault be my lack of self control??)

So these are really just those 7 layer magic bars you’ve seen a thousand times, but in a Christmas-y disguise.  They’re not exactly fine baking– but if you like white chocolate (and I do), they are pretty scrumptious.  Love the cranberry and the orange peel is the perfect foil to all that sweetness.  Merry Christmas!

1  1/2 cup crushed graham cracker crumbs (1 pack–9 crackers)
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 cups white chocolate chips (12 oz. bag)
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup dried cherries or dried cranberries
2 tab. grated orange peel (about 1 orange)
1 cup pecans, chopped
14 oz. can condensed milk

Stir together the graham cracker crumbs, melted butter.  Press the mixture into a 9″x13″ baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.

Then layer on the white chocolate chips, coconut, cranberries, pecans and orange peel.  Drizzle the condensed milk evenly over the whole baking dish. Smoosh it down with the back of a spoon.

Pop it into the oven at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes, just until the edges start to brown (keep an eye on it!)  Let it all cool before you cut nice neat little squares.

P.S. Store the leftovers in a storage container in a single layer in the fridge.

  2. These look delicious Rhonda! Very Christmasy indeed (you might want to edit the ‘white chocolate chips’ in the ingredients though, just a typo! 🙂 Hope that you’re having a blessed start to the festive season, it’s getting hot over here so I’m trying my best to stay in the air conditioning! Sending you hugs xo
