Seven Layers of Goodie Deliciousness!

Oh, the wonderful memories I have 
of my mom making these Goodie Bars.  
They smell SO good when they are baking 
and they taste amazing.

To me when my mom would make these up they were magic, delicious, and there was never a family outing, baby blessing, Baptism dinner, Christmas Party, or any other special occasion even that we attended that these yummy bars didn't grace the dessert table.  These were what she was famous for.
Everyone was so excited to come to an event, just because they knew these would be there to enjoy.
These were even on the dessert trays for our wedding reception. 
For years, I thought these were her own creation, because I never had them anywhere else, but as you grow up, you realize there are many people that have the same or similar recipes as you do.  

Before I started making Cinnamon Roasted Almonds and Caramels for our Christmas goodie boxes, these
Seven Layer Goodie Bars along with Gumdrop Bread and other yummy things were what I would give our neighbors each year at Christmas Time.

If you want something that is SO easy and quick to throw together
that is out of this world delicious,
try making some of these today...they are  
Seven Layers of Goodie Deliciousness!
Seven Layer Goodie Bars

1 cube of REAL butter
1 cup crushed graham crackers
1 cup coconut
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk 
Heat oven to 350 degrees.   
Place butter in a 9x13 pan and put in the oven until the butter is melted. 
Remove pan and sprinkle with crushed graham crackers, coconut, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, walnuts and last of all, pour 1 can of condensed milk to completely cover the top of bars.  
Place back in oven and cook for 25 minutes.  
Remove from oven and let cool over night.  
Cut into bars and enjoy!

that shared so many yummy recipes and 
taught me so many wonderful things!

These are one of my very favorite bars too and I have always known them as "Magic Bars". Ha Ha
I was not introduced to them until I became LDS at age 13 and after that they were my favorite.
I wonder if it is more of an LDS recipe?? Anyway they are definately yummy!
I really love that wedding photo - so cute!
