Classic 7 Layer Bars Recipe

  • One of my favorite desserts is the classic 7 Layer Bars recipe. These simple bars are great for kicking off the new year. They are so easy to make, packed with different flavors, and always looks amazing. I've always particularly enjoyed they way you get so many textures and flavors in each bite. The best part is that making them is really a snap.

    It is so simple—some easy layering and all you do is slip the pan in the oven. After baking for well under an hour they are all ready to cool and be cut. These are great for taking to parties, even for New Year's Eve events, because people always love them. They are also great for kids and even packing as a sweet treat for after lunch. I hope you enjoy these as much as we do this season!
