7 Layer Cookies

A few months ago my oldest son and I entered a cooking/baking competition together through Better Together BC, and while we did not win the competition, we had a lot of fun making the video and baking together, and we still believe that we have a winner of a recipe :-) I've decided to share it with you here today!  These 7 Layer Cookies are so easy to prepare, it's a perfect project to do with the kids.  And it's also great as we plan ahead for our Christmas baking.  With a little preparation at the start by lining up all of the ingredients, this is an easy treat for the little ones to create.  Here is the recipe:

7 Layer Cookies (Source: The Kitchen is My Playground)

1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cup flaked coconut (I used unsweetened)
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
14 oz sweetened condensed milk
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 325° F.

Melt butter and pour into 9 x 13 baking pan. Swirl around to ensure full coverage of the bottom of the pan.

Add each of the ingredients in layers, in the order that they appear on the recipe (graham cracker crumbs then coconut then chocolate chips, and so on).

Bake at 325° F for 28-30 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow the pan to cool completely before cutting into squares. Serve and enjoy!

Makes 24 bars. 


  1. We always called these "Hello Dolly" squares, always a staple for Christmas.

  2. Oh my goodness! This looks YUMMY! Thank you for sharing your recipe.

  3. Looks amazing. my son saw them and wants to try it :)

  4. Yum! These look delicious - thanks for sharing :)

  5. This sounds delicious!! What a treat!

  6. WOW! These have everything! A ton of my favorite things all in one pan. (I'm not a huge fan of pecans though so I would maybe add in a different ingredient, like toffee chips? Or something else creative). And talk about EASY, you just throw it all in. Looks fantastic.
