More About This Recipe

*	This fun holiday twist on the classic seven-layer magic cookie bar
is decadent, sweet and absolutely delightful.

Do you remember when you were a kid and your mom made the most amazing
looking treats during the holiday season? 

I mean, there were platters of cookies all season long in my house. It was
pure heaven. Except for when I would accidentally stumble upon a cookie that
I thought contained chocolate chips and it actually contained raisins. (That
actually happened a lot, because my dad is apparently the world’s biggest
raisin fan.)

I’m here today with a cookie recipe that does not contain the dreaded hidden
raisin: Christmas 7-Layer Cookie Bars. 

You’re going to need a pouch of Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix, butter, an
egg, some pretzels, semi-sweet chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, red
and green M&M’s™ candies, sweetened condensed milk, sweetened coconut
flakes, and some Christmas sprinkles. Sounds like a lot of ingredients, but
you’ll be shocked how easy this is to prepare.

First, mix together the cookie dough as directed on the package. You don’t
even need a mixer for this!

Press that into a 9x13-inch baking dish and bake it up for about 15 minutes.
The bars won’t be done yet, but don’t worry. They’ll go back in the oven
soon.

Top the bars with chocolate chips


Coconut flakes...

And sweetened condensed milk. 

Arrange your mini pretzels over the top of all that goodness
  

Sprinkle on your white chocolate chips... 

Then a layer of M&M’s™... 

And then go to town dumping on some sprinkles! Isn’t this adorable? 

This needs to bake for about 30 minutes and cool for a couple of hours. When
you’re ready to dig in, you’ll have a sweet, gooey cookie bar that everyone
will love!
