I had something LIKE these in a favorite bagel shop years ago (they had no idea how to make them, what was in them and they didn't have a name, the girl behind the counter told me "I have no clue, they just come on the truck every week), so I went home and made my own version, since they didn't have a name and a friend of mine always called them Goff Bars they became "Goff Bars".

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
REALLY sweet and REALLY decadent! This is a killer way to satisfy any sweet tooth.

Ingredients

1 pkg
graham crackers, crushed
6 Tbsp
butter (margarine if you must but butter is better)
1/4 c
sugar
6 oz
peanut butter chips
6 oz
white chocolate chips
6 oz
butterscotch chips
6 oz
chocolate chips
1 pkg
coconut, flaked
1 pkg
sliced almonds
1 can(s)
sweetened condensed milk (14 oz)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Pre-Heat oven to 400 degrees.
2
In a medium bowl melt butter in the microwave then add sugar and graham crackers (like a pie crust).
3
Spray a shallow baking dish with no-stick cooking spray and put the graham cracker mixture in it. Spread evenly and pack down gently.
4
Sprinkle all the chips evenly then cover with the coconut.
5
Pour the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the coconut, making sure to coat the entire top. Sprinkle the almonds on top.
6
Bake until golden (about 20-30 minutes) Remove and cool until warm to the touch. They need to be cut while warm otherwise you just break off the pieces to serve. (I try to cut these about 1" X 1" because they are VERY rich and a brownie size one is waaaay too much at once)

One package of graham crackers...is that one whole package with the three wrapped packages inside (3 wrapped packages total), or one of those wrapped packages? Thanks!

I have always called these "7 Layer Bars" and have made them with chocolate and butterscotch chips....but the main reason I am commenting is to say that instead of making the graham cracker crust just melt the butter directly in the pan as the oven is preheating then sprinkle the crumbs of the melted butter then continue layering the rest of the ingredients! And yes they are VERY rich but oh so yummy!! :o)

Eagle Brand calls these Magic Cookie Bars!
When I feel like going the "healthy" route, I add dried cranberries, cherries etc...And I also use pecans instead but just my preference.
