Junk Bars (aka Seven Layer Bars)

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by nomnom

Oh sweet, sweet decadence made a tad less naughty. I grew up with everyone calling them "junk bars," but they're also known as seven-layer or magic bars/cookies. No matter what you call it, it's a real treat ;)

This did not work for me at all! I don't know if I did something horribly wrong or what but I ended up having to throw the whole thing out! The graham crust was somewhat mushy and none of the chocolate chips or caramel chips melted. It didn't hold together at all - just fell apart when I tried to cut it. I don't know what happened! Anyway, I won't try it again - my husband was a little irritated at all the waste!
