HELLO DOLLY!! "Seven Layer Magic Hello Dolly Bars"

Nancy J. Patrykus


HELLO DOLLY, SEVEN LAYER BARS, MAGIC COOKIE BARS, HELLO DOLLIES, ETC. This very popular cookie goes by many names. You have,
"7 Layer Bars" if you actually use all seven layers. Which includes butter, graham crackers crumbs,condenced milk,chocolate & butterscotch chips, coconut & nuts, which you layer directly into the pan.
If you leave off 1 chip, and/or the coconut, you have "Magic Cookie Bars".
If you like singing old Broadway Tunes,you can make either recipe and call them "HELLO DOLLIES". Which I read was the original name. Does it matter?
They are very,decadent & oh, so delicious!

How to Make HELLO DOLLY!! "Seven Layer Magic Hello Dolly Bars"


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350F..
    Mix together the butter and graham cracker crumbs and press into bottom of a 13x9 inch baking pan...that you have lined with parchment paper.
    Pour condensed milk over the pressed in graham cracker base.
    Sprinkle evenly with chocolate chips,
    butterscotch chips, nuts and coconut.
  2. Bake for 30 minutes.
    Take out of oven, and cool in the pan on a wire rack..10-15 minutes.
    Then lift parchment up from the pan
    and cut cookies into bars.
  3. NOW the fun part!
    Put on a sparkly dress, a feather in your hair...
    then playing the part...and singing,
    as you dance over to your neighbors home,
    with a lovely plate of DOLLIES!
  4. ***NOTE: After assembling all the ingredients,to bake these bars...I tripped on my dogs leach, and fell prone face down on the floor,right on the left side of my face.
    Fracturing the left 5th meta-carpal bone in my left hand,while trying to stop my fall.
    I ended up at Urgent Care,with a black and blue face, a blackand bruised eye, and a wrist& hand brace for 3-4 weeks.
    This morning I am swollen and can't use my left hand. Fingers are sore and stiff. Typing with only my right hand goes very slow. Bottom line is...I could not bake the coookie bars as planned. So the cooked cookie bar foto is from Hotti Biscotti. I am blessed..it could have been ..very tragic.
    Thank you GOD! For all blessings. Even for my friend Ellie being here,(to give me a perm).She helped me up then drove me for treatment and x-rays.
    HUGS, Nancy..1/26/13
