7 Layer Magic Bars

Ever since I was a little girl occasionally I would have this delicious cookie bar but never knew the name of it. It was so good that I’d always want to go back for seconds. However, who wouldn’t with all the luscious ingredients in this delectable bar.

It wasn’t until just recently that I came across a recipe that sounded just like the one I had as a kid. So last night I decided to try and make it. I’m sure many of you have had this and made it before but, not knowing it’s name I never had the opportunity to make the recipe.

It’s called a 7 Layer Magic Bar and oh my goodness it’s to die for!

The recipe can be found in many forms but the original version comes from Eagle Brand Foods.

I can tell you that after making it, the recipe tastes best cold rather than warm, in my opinion. But, you be the judge. Here’s the recipe.

I tried the recipe placing the ingredients in this order:

Graham Cracker Crumbs
Chocolate Chips
Butterscotch Chips
Chopped pecans
Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk

However, next time we thought it would be fun to try replacing the butterscotch chips with peanut butter chips. Of course the best part of trying a recipe is to modify it to your taste or dietary needs.

I think this would be a great dessert to bring to a party or have at your own. It’s quick and simple to prepare and heavenly tasting!

If you’ve made this before how have you changed the recipe?

This is so yummy I’m certain by days end the entire 9×13 pan will be gone!

  1. Sounds yummy, Vicki! I think I would omit the butterscotch and add more CHOCOLATE!!!

  2. Hi Vicki, How is CO? Yep, those are power packed with just a few choice calories, right? hehe Nicely done.

  3. I think anyway you’d want to make them would be great. I’m going to try using peanut butter chips in place of the butterscotch next time. Although I like it with the butterscotch. Experiment with the flavors you like Maria and let us know what you tried and how it was.

    Yes Amy Ruth these aren’t low cal but you could certainly use lower fat sweetened condensed milk and it probably wouldn’t even sacrifice the taste.

  4. Peanut butter chips sound good to me. YUM!

  5. Then it would be like a 7 layer Reese’s peanut butter magic bar! Yum

  6. Hey, is this something that’s Nutrisystem-compatible? These look wonderful!!! I will make them for some event and have a little taste — I hope.

  7. I don’t know the Nutrisystem diet but you can check. I would venture to say NO!
