Heavenly 7 Layer Bars are full of chocolatey, butterscotch, goodness. They are crunchy and sweet and so easy to make. Your family is going to love them!

7 layer bars next to a glass of milk.

We love desserts that feed a crowd. If it can be made in a 9×13 pan, we are all over it. You see, we’re the kind of family that doesn’t want just one tiny serving of dessert, we want the option to go back for seconds without having a fork fight with the kids over who gets it. 7 layer bars give you all of that crunch and chocolatey, coconut-y flavor that you’re craving. Trust us, it’s addictingly good. 

Salted vs. Unsalted Butter:

We highly recommend you use salted butter in this recipe. If you need to use unsalted, you will want to add 1/4 teaspoon salt to your melted butter.


We understand that nut allergies are a real thing, and so many are omitting nuts to play it safe. Pecans in this recipe are completely optional and can be left out for any reason.


We love the added texture and sweetness the coconut brings to this recipe. If you do not love coconut, you can always leave it out.

Substitutions for Heavenly 7 Layer Bars: 

Make a peanut butter twist on this recipe and substitute peanut butter chips for the butterscotch chips, and peanuts for the pecans! It’s amazing!

Serving Instructions:

You need to let these bars fully set before slicing and serving. Either let them cool in the refrigerator or set for a few hours.

Storage Instructions:

Store any leftovers in an airtight container or zip-top bag for up to 5 days.
