    I loved these! I grew up on these but never had the butterscotch chips in them. Yummmmy-thank's for posting. Diana

    These are very tasty, but the nuts don't stick to them. I think maybe placing the coconut next to the nuts doesn't work well (nothing to make them stick together). If I try them again, I think, I'll put the chocolate chips between the coconut and the nuts...

    Kids loved these next time I will have to make 2 pans at one time.

    This is the exact recipe I use! The only thing I do differently is drizzle 1/2 of the sweetend condensed milk over the crumbs, and the other half over the top of all the layers. That way you don't have to press down at all, it just sticks together.

    The other day I went to get in my car. Lo and behold there was a baggie on the hood of my car filled with some bakery. So, I took the baggie off the hood and got in my car. Needless to say, when I was driving I devoured all of the bars. They were phenominal! I knew they had to be from my neighbor, so when I got home, I ran like a wild woman to her house. "What were those bars that you left me?" I begged. She said, "Seven Layer Magic Bars! If you want the recipe, I can get it from my friend." I thanked her, but refused, because I knew that one quick trip to Recipezaar and I would have the recipe. And I was right! They are so good that I'm afraid to make any more, because I'm trying desperately to loose weight, and with these in the house, my will power will be gone! If you haven't tried these, you are really missing out on a taste sensation--as Tony the Tiger would say...."THEY'RE GREAT!"

    Very Sweet, VERY good. Used toffee pieces instead of butterscotch,arrowroot cookies instead of graham crackers,wish i would have read more of the reviews before as pouring half of the sweetened condensed milk would have made it stick together better, YUM!
