Seven Layer Bars or Yuletide Layer Bars
Yuletide Layer Bars have that same irresistible taste as all Seven Layer Bars have but Yultide Layer Bars have an irresistible secret. They’re made with chocolate flavored sweetened condensed milk! Yes ma’am you read that right, Eagle Brand has come out with not one but two new flavors of sweetened condensed milk. Eagle Brand chocolate sweetened condensed milk and Eagle Brand caramel sweetened condensed milk. Not only are these bars made with new and delicious sweetened condensed milk, they’re also made with red and green holiday colored chocolate chips.
Seven Layer Bars or Yuletide Layer Bars are oh so delicious they certainly won’t last long. You might want to make 2 pans!! This recipe calls for chopped pecans but you can make these addicting bars with the usual chopped walnuts. Seven Layer bars are one of my all time favorite. They’re about neck and neck with Special K bars in my book. My sister-in-law calls Seven Layer Bars, Hello Dolly Bars. I’m not sure why but isn’t it funny how the same bars can have different names or how one family calls a dish one thing and another calls the same dish another name? I’m not sure who Dolly is but I’m sure she would approve of her namesake bars.
