A fall twist to the original 7-Layer Magic Bars with the addition of bright red autumn cranberries and other fall harvest goodies. These bar cookies are so good with an ooey, gooey texture and sweet, tangy, coconut goodness in every bite.

  • 1/4 cup
    unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup
    graham cracker crumbs
  • 3/4 cup
    white chocolate chips (or vanilla baking morsels)
  • 1/4 cup
    semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup
    chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup
    dried cranberries (or craisins)
  • 1 cup
    sweetened coconut flakes, shredded (loosely filled, not packed)
  • 10 oz
    sweetened condensed milk (about 2/3 of a 14-oz can)

How to Make Seven Layer Cranberry Bars


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8-by-8-inch baking pan with parchment paper that extends 2 inches on both ends. Lightly spray parchment with no-stick cooking spray; set pan aside.
  2. Toss the graham crackers crumbs and butter together with a fork until crumbs are evenly coated.
  3. Place crumb mixture in prepared baking pan, and use your fingertips to pat crumbs into a single layer that covers the bottom of the baking pan. Run the back of a large spoon over the surface to form a smooth, flat layer.
  4. Evenly sprinkle the white chocolate chips on top. Then add a layer of chocolate chips, nuts, cranberries, and coconut (in that order). Evenly drizzle the condensed milk over the top.
  5. Place baking dish in oven and bake for about 22 to 28 minutes, or until lightly golden brown around edges and the center is mostly set. Watch closely in the final few minutes of baking time, because the coconut can burn quite quickly.
  6. Place pan on a wire rack to cool in pan for at least 2 hours (or longer) before slicing and serving. Bars will firm up as they cool. Bars will keep airtight at room temperature for up to 1 week, or for up to 6 months in the freezer if wrapped well and kept in airtight container.
