Tropical 7 Layer Twist Bars

Tropical 7 Layer Twist Bars created by Ratalouille

*After making 7 Layer Bars for a bake sale at work, I started thinking about how well white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts go together. Then I thought, "Hey!!! What would happen if I threw them together with some pineapple and coconut?", and this is what I came up with ... A refreshing tropical twist on an old favorite. Depending on how big you cut your pieces, you can get about 12 to 16 bars. I also plan on making these in a mini muffin pan, to get some little "tropical tarts"

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Put the butter into a 9x13-inch baking pan and place in the oven while preheating, to melt.
  • Place graham crackers in a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin, or use a food processor to make fine crumbs.
  • When the butter is melted, remove from the oven and pour graham cracker crumbs over the butter. Toss to combine until all the butter is absorbed. Press crumb mixture firmly to make crust.
  • Sprinkle white chocolate chips, macadamia nuts, then pineapple over the crust. Press down lightly. Pour half the can of condensed milk over this layer. Next, sprinkle on the coconut, pressing down slightly, then pour the remaining condensed milk over the top.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • I find it best to let the bars cool completely before cutting, to let everything set up. OPTIONAL: You can drizzle more melted white chocolate chips over the top.
  • Enjoy.

    I saw this recipe years ago but, it had maraschino cherries in place of the macadamia nuts, no graham cracker crust (as coconut and milk create a crust of their own. very good though. I first had as a child, then found again as an adult and made for parties. Especially good for Bridal, Baby, Birthday parties.
