This vintage recipe has gone by several names over the years: Hello Dolly Bars, Magic Cookie Bars and Seven Layer Bars. This is one of the easiest recipes around as it doesn’t require a bowl or even a mixing spoon. All you need is a pan and your ingredients.
The “magic” is in the layering. There are seven ingredients that are placed in the pan one after another until you have seven layers of sweetness. Bake it, cool it, cut it. As simple as that.
When I made these, one of my teenage sons had several friends over. So it didn’t take long for half the pan to disappear! These are great for bake sales, potlucks, picnics, barbecues, parties and family get togethers. They are super simple to make and always a hit.
