I love Cranberry Bliss Bars and Seven Layer Bars so I marryed two favorite bars into one. A buttery graham cracker crust, topped with white chocolate chips, chocolate chips, walnuts, dried cranberries, coconut, and sweetened condensed milk. It’s a fast, easy, one-bowl, no-mixer recipe that’s as easy as sprinkling and layering ingredients in a pan. There’s a slightly crunchy graham cracker crust, extra crunch from the walnuts, with chewiness from the cranberries and coconut. If you need a holiday dessert that’s virtually effortless but that tastes like a million bucks, this is the one.
YIELD: ONE 8X8 PAN, 9 TO 12 GENEROUS SQUARES
1/4 cup butter, melted (I use unsalted, but salted tames some of the sweetness)
scant 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup dried cranberries (I use orange-flavored dried cranberries)
1 cup sweetened shredded coconut flakes, measured loosely and not packed
about two-thirds can (14-ounce) sweetened condensed milk (eyeball it)
- Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8-by-8-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, spray with cooking spray; set aside.
- To a large, microwave-safe bowl add the butter and heat on high power to melt, about 1 minute.
- Add the graham crackers crumbs and toss lightly with a fork to coat crumbs evenly.
