Thanks to my cookbook give away the other week, I discovered in the comments another kind of bar/dainty that I would like to try. And as per usual, I put my own twist on it, which is very easy to do with seven layer bars, you can invent the layers as you go and to your taste. I used dark and white chocolate and the results were mouth-wateringly good.

This was so rich and delectable, and so satisfying for a sweet tooth, or sweet teeth, like mine. It was fantastic cold from the fridge, warm on the counter…and they were supposed to go to my husbands work and never made it there.

These seven layer bars are absolutely loaded with sugar, almost to the point where your teeth hurt. I tried to cut the sweetness a little by using unsweetened coconut – something I highly suggest using – and they were awesome. However, they are definitely one of the sweetest bars out there!

Happy baking!
