Easy Fall 7 Layer Bars

Whenever I find a great formula for something I repeat it, especially on this website.

I posted gooey bars. You all love gooey bars…so I made more.

I posted chocolate chip cookies that you all continue to devour…so I made more.

Over the years I’ve posted several recipes for magic bars. Again, it turns out you guys like magic bars; they’re consistently in my top search items that get you here. So…I made you more magic bars: in pumpkin flavor.

What is a magic bar?

Magic bars are also called 7 layer bars or Magic Cookie Bars. They originated, I think, on the Eagle Brand website (Eagle makes sweetened condensed milk).

Seven layer bars are a throwback recipe and one of my favorite things to do is change them up to fit my mood.

I prefer calling these Magic Bars instead of 7 layer bars because they don’t always have 7 layers, at least in the recipes I’ve seen around the internet.

Important Ingredients

  • Gingersnap Crust – pumpkin and gingersnaps go SO WELL together!
  • White chocolate chips – again, pumpkin and white chocolate are paired together frequently. They’re BFFS!
  • Pecans – you could also use walnuts.
  • Coconut – coconut is always optional but adds some nice flavor.
  • Toffee Bits – they add crunch and toasty flavor.
  • Pumpkin – obviously! The pumpkin in these 7 layer bars is mixed with #7…
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk – what brings it all together.

Expert Tips

  • If you make 7 layer bars and they’re too gooey, it’s probably because they’re not cooled properly. Try chilling them before slicing!
  • It’s important to let these cool completely before you try and slice them!
