Reviews for Seven Layer Magic Cookie Bars
"These are so awesome !! My Momma made pans and pans of these at Christmas every year for presents -- with a little variation on the chips and they were gone in minutes !!"
"The very best ever....thanks"
"This was one of the first recipes I made as a kid. I also used it when my nephews were little and they wanted to bake something. They learned how to measure things and the results were perfect! The only change I made was to swap out the butterscotch chips for milk chocolate chips or English toffee bits."
"I have been baking these cookie bars for years, and my mother before me! They are so simple, yet really delicious. I, too, bake these at 325 rather than 350 so the bars don't get too dark around the edges. I made some today after being reminded about them on the TOH website. A great classic recipe!"
"All I can say is YUM!!!!!!!!!!!This was my 1st time making these...it's my daughter's B'day & when I saw the recipe I had to make it along with the standard cupcakes. I did make some changes though. I doubled the crust & milk & used 2 whole bags of chocolate chips (1 3/4 cup ea, 1 was milk chocolate & 1 was semisweet) & used almonds, but used the same size pan. It tastes just like Almond Rocha which I love. Great recipe, thanks for sharing with us!!"
"I have been making these for YEARS too. Very important to put the milk over the crumbs, it makes getting them out of the pan SO much easier!! ( & you can eliminate the foil ) You can change the flavors as you choose, vanilla wafers, craisins. the combinations are endless!!"
"A true "Oldie But A Goodie"! Thanks for reminding me about these incredibly tasty & very easy to make bars. I haven't made them for years, but I'm definitely going to make them (again) this weekend....oooo, yum! I can't wait to surprise my 'guys' with these delicious bars, which we all loved so much 'back in the day'. (I'm presently almost drooling)."
"I have been making these for years. This recipe is a must for our Christmas cookie list. I melt the butter in my baking pan and pour the crumbs over the butter which seems easier to me than mixing the butter and crumbs together. I also pour the eagle brand milk over all layered ingredients. I prefer cooking this at 325 degrees because edges do not seem to get as dark. Do not overcook. They keep well in a bowl/dish with a tight lid for couple of weeks. Because we cut these into very small 1" sqaures, one recipe makes plenty to make friends cookie plates at Christmas, and have enough for my family's Christmas cookie plate and also for our New Year's dessert platter."
"I've been making these for as long as I can remember. Like many others have mentioned, I always poured the Eagle brand on last. We have also used a variety of chips, but the favorite combination seems to be Dark chocolate and white chocolate chips."
"I, too, have made this recipes since I was a child. It is a fabulous recipe, easy enough for kids to make. I also do not put the Eagle brand on until the last item. These are very rich cookies. A small piece will satisfy your sweet tooth."
"Instead of using graham crackers crumbs , use Ritz Crackers I think the salt in the crackers gives it a better taste. just crush them up to the 1 1/2 c and add butter just like the recipe said. Just try it I think you will agree!"
"These are soooo good!!!!! I've made these cookie bars for years and they're just as good now! Thank You Eagle Brand Condensed Milk!"
"My mom has been making these since we were little, they are probably my favorite treat. I have made them from my kids as well and they are always a hit. I started using peanutbutter chips instead of butterscotch, cause who doesn't love peanutbutter and chocolate??? And I think they are just as good if not better!"
"I always chop the butterscotch chips up so that it blends the flavor more. It melts into the condensed milk so much better."
"<p>I have made this recipe for over 20 years, i have even used carob chips( for my father in law) with cherry chips. But i have always packed the graham crackers in the bottom of the pan, first,make sre packed tightly.I use two different flavored chips, coconut,and nuts(if i don't use nuts because of an allergy i use a third flavor chip. I DON'T PUT ON THE EAGLE BRAND MILK TILL THE END! I have always used this as a kid friendly recipe so it makes it easier for them to evenly distribute the ingredients(this was how I was taught) at the end i punch two holes in opposite end of can, depending on how old I let them put it on(we all know untill you take off the whole lid all of it will not come out) This is such a versitile recipe- for instance my childrens grandfather could not have chocolate hense the carrob then they would take the bright red cherry chips and spell I love grandpa,which made him feel special because everyone brought desserts and snacky foods. Also for the real chocolate lover I have used the chocolate flavored Eagle brand milk</p>"
"I've made these bars for years. And no matter where they go everyone loves them. The great thing is they're so easy to make and I don't think you could possibly mess them up. The only real problem with them is that you can't eat just one!"
"I don't mix the butter and crumbs. Just pour the butter in pan then sprinkle the crumbs over top. You can even melt the butter in the pan. No extra dishes to wash."
"My husband's mother made these for him ever since he was a child. They omit the butterscotch chips though. He calls them Hello Dolly Cookies -- So glad I found the recipe!"
"Easy to make , Great Christmas cookieRecipe Highly Recomend to everyone"
