7 layers bars are given a fun pumpkin twist with this delicious recipe for pumpkin magic bars.
Today’s recipe is one of those recipes that have been around for decades. Your mother made them and probably your grandmother. Originally they were called a Seven Layer Bar because there were 7 layers of goodness in one bar cookie. Today we have added some pumpkin goodness to make these yummy Pumpkin Magic Bars.
My 7 layer bars actually only have 6 layers. I don’t like coconut, so I left it out. But it is easy to add back in if you are a coconut fan. And the base of my cookie is a pumpkin flavored cake mix. That gives this dessert a fun fall twist.
The great thing about this recipe is it will work with any yummy cake mix flavor! So customize it to what your family will love. You combine the cake mix with the butter and egg to create the first layer. Be sure and line your pan with foil sprayed with cooking spray or parchment paper to make removing the bars easier.
Then, layer white chocolate chips, cinnamon chips and pecans on top of the dough. Next, top that with a can of sweetened condensed milk. This is what makes the recipe gooey! And finally, top everything off with toffee chips and the missing coconut.
Cinnamon chips can be a bit hard to find, so if you aren’t able to find cinnamon chips try semi-sweet chocolate chips.
