Recipe: Seven Layer Bars

The boyfriend's parents swung through town last weekend on their annual winter journey down to Florida. Like any good Italian family, they know good food and wine. So what's a girl to do to impress? Well first off, take them out to eat! A girl can't take too much kitchen induced stress. That being said, I wanted to flex my culinary muscles a bit, so I decided to bake a simple but impressive recipe for dessert.

The recipe suggested the importance of splurging on ingredients, so I got the best I could find for each of the main ingredients. This recipe is about as easy as it gets. For the most part you just throw a bunch of delicious things, one on top of another, and then bake. Hard to screw up!

Fortunately they were just as good as I'd hoped. Layers of sweetness and texture with just a bit of crunch and chew...yum! They were a hit with coffee after dinner, and an equally big hit when eaten by my coworkers the following day. I have some frozen for a rainy day, too. You really can't get easier than this, and they are decadent and delicious, so I highly recommend trying them out next time you've got a sweet craving. Not much to look at, I admit, but who cares when there's chocolate, white chocolate, butterscotch, coconut, and nuts involved?
