Seven layer bars 2Happy New Year’s Eve! Today I have the perfect bar to ring in the new year. Most of you have already heard of seven layer bars, they are quite famous in their deliciousness. This desert has a wonderful candy bar consistency, with its rich chocolate, delectable butterscotch, toasted coconut, and crumbly graham cracker crust; no one can resist this bar. They are the perfect addition to your New Year’s Eve party and they are so simple to make. As their name suggests, you just layer the ingredients and that’s it and when they are done baking, you have a full pan of candy bar awesomeness!  So if you are looking for that last-minute treat for your New Year’s Eve guests, whip up a batch of seven layer bars.  If you have too many bars (like that’s even possible!) just freeze the extras.
