Seven Layer Delights (aka. Magic Bars)

My mom use to make these when I was growing up. They are sooo delicious.  They really take me back to when I was younger.  I have made these four times since becoming vegan (veganized the recipe). They are not particularly healthy so I try to make them for special occasion only.  We had friends over last night and they LOVED them!

The past two blog posts I wrote about two recipes (gwam crackers & coconut sweetened condensed milk). Both of these recipes are used in the Seven Layer Delight Bars. Check out the previous blogs if you need more info.

1/2 cup Earth Balance (I use the soy free kind)
1 1/4 cups gwam crackers (or store bought vegan graham crackers that are crushed up)
14 oz of sweetened condensed coconut milk
6 oz ghirardelli semi sweet chocolate chips - the gold bag
6 oz vegan butterscotch chips
1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
3/4 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 F. If you are using a glass baking sheet preheat to 330 F.
Melt Earth Balance. Evenly sprinkle gwam cracker crumbs on bottom of a 9 X 5 pan. Moisten with the melted earth balance and then pat down.
Pour 1/2 of sweetened condensed coconut milk over crumbs. I like to drizzle lightly.
Decorate with chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, coconut and nuts.
Drizzle remaining sweetened condensed coconut milk over the top.

Bake for 25-30 minutes, until lightly browned. Allow to cool.  I liked to store these in the refrigerator because they harden up and come out in solid squares. At room temperature they tend to be crumbly and messy.
