Delicious Homemade Christmas Seven Layer Bars You Need To Try!

This delicious recipe for seven-layer bars is a perfect Christmas treat and was passed down from my great-grandmother through generations.

Hey y’all, Tiffany here with a recipe for seven-layer bars that is from my great-grandmother and is perfect for Christmas!

This recipe is from a group of Christmas dessert recipes that were passed down over the generations: divinity candy, caramel pecan turtles, fudge, and caramels. Altogether, these are a great group of Christmas treats to pass out for caroling and go perfectly with The World’s Creamiest, Most Delicious Hot Chocolate (in a Slow Cooker!)

If you don’t have time to make these seven layer bars, then try this recipe for the Best Graham Cracker Toffee instead.

Seven Layer Bars Recipe


  • 1 package of graham crackers crumbs, crushed
  • 1 cube of butter, melted
  • 1 cup (0.24 l) coconut
  • 1 cup (0.24 l) chocolate chips
  • 1 cup (0.24 l) butterscotch chips
  • 1 cup (0.24 l) peanut butter chips (optional)
  • 1 cup (0.24 l) nuts
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk

Materials you need:

  • Airtight container
  • Cooking spray
  • Small bowl
  • Wire rack
  • Baking pan
  • cutting board

Combine the graham cracker crumbs and the melted butter and gently press them directly onto the bottom of the 9×13-inch baking pan to form the graham cracker crust. No parchment paper or wax paper is needed.

Layer the following ingredients on top of our magic cookie bars: coconut flakes, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and nuts.

First up, a layer of sweet flaked coconut on top of our graham cracker crumbs – it’s like a snowy blanket for our magic cookie bars. Next, let’s toss on a handful of chocolate chips or semi-sweet chocolate chips, because, well, who can resist seven-layer magic bars during the holidays?

Let’s throw in some butterscotch chips for that extra touch of warmth and sweetness. Add the remaining ingredients and of course, we can’t forget the crunch, so a handful of chopped nuts goes on top. It’s like building a delicious winter wonderland, one layer at a time.

What I love about this part is that you can get creative. Mix and match the layers, add a bit more of what you love, and make it your cozy creation. It’s not just about ingredients; it’s about infusing each layer with a bit of love and joy, just like this Layered Taco Dip.

Pour the sweetened condensed milk evenly over everything. It’s the glue that brings all these layers together, creating a symphony of flavors and textures.

Set the oven to 350 °F (ca. 177 °C), and let the magic happen for about 30 minutes until they turn golden brown. This step is the easy part – no need to be a baking pro! So, set that timer, let the oven work its magic, and get ready for your kitchen to become a holiday-scented wonderland!

Allow our Christmas Seven Layer Bars to cool completely. It’s like giving our delicious creation a bit of time to settle and get comfy. Once they’ve cooled down, grab a knife, and cut those bars into cozy squares. And there you have it – the sweet result of our holiday kitchen recipe.

No need to rush; it’s all about savoring the moment. Once they’re all cut and looking irresistibly tasty, it’s time to serve up some holiday happiness. Enjoy these little bites of joy with your loved ones, and savor the warmth they bring to your taste buds.

If you plan on serving them at a Christmas party, they go perfectly with this recipe for the best Rice Krispy Treats!
