7 Layer Brownies

When Brownies say Hello to Dolly, you end up with these 7 Layer Brownies. Everything you love about 7 layer bars but on top of a brownie instead of a graham cracker crust.

7 layer brownies are basically the same as regular 7 layer bars (aka hello dolly bars) but instead of a graham cracker crust you have a brownie! I figured I’ve done Funfetti 7 layer bars, why not 7 layer brownies?

Peel back the layers of 7 Layer Brownies.

  1. Brownie mix
  2. Flaked coconut
  3. Toffee bits
  4. Semisweet chocolate chips
  5. White chocolate chips
  6. Chopped pecans or walnuts
  7. Sweetened condensed milk

Although depending on the recipe, butter counts as a layer when using a graham cracker crust. I find this to be silly because it’s not a layer if it’s mixed with graham crackers as part of the crust. Do the water, oil, and eggs count as a layer in the brownie crust of this recipe, then? No, the brownie is clearly just one layer of these 7 layer brownies.

Plate with 7 Layer Brownies.

That’s the best part of 7 layer bars though, you can really layer in whatever you want in there. Don’t have toffee bits? Use butterscotch chips instead. Don’t like nuts? GET OUT! Just kidding :-P. But seriously, if I can make layer bars with leftover Halloween candy, you can use just about anything.

This is why I am slowly amping up my stock of layer bar recipes on this website of mine. I keep finding new flavor combinations that need to be explored. I’ve done chocolate peanut butter 7 layer bars, s’mores 7 layer bars, chocolate coconut pecan 7 layer bars, and even fruit cake 7 layer bars. What will I 7-layer-bar next?

Valentine’s Funfetti 7-Layer Bars June 5, 2024 - 4:14 pm

[…] Day with a 7-layer bar, except with a Funfetti crust instead of graham cracker. Heck a 7 layer brownie base could work with these other 6 layers, if you need more chocolate in your Valentine’s Day […]
