A spin on the classic Seven Layer Magic Bars! This yummy Seven Layer Bar is all about peanuts, peanut butter chips and Butterfinger pieces! Strictly for peanut butter lovers only y’all! Today I am sharing not only this recipe with you, but also a few pictures from our family bake day!
The beauty of these amazing tasting bars are that you can customize them any way you want! Don’t like something? Switch it out! I made the classic version of these bars (recipe here) but because I made these for our annual family Holiday Bake Day, I thought I would include a version that didn’t have coconut. Because I think coconut is either a love or hate kinda thing. I’m on the hate side. Sorry. So if you like coconut, check out my Original Seven Layer Bar recipe and if you don’t, then read on for the perfect alternative recipe for you! But first….I interrupt this recipe for pictures of our annual family Holiday Bake Day!
My sister Wendy, me and my momma on our annual Holiday Bake Day! Normally we get together and bake everything together, but this year we made all of our goodies ahead of time. We each make 3-4 different treats and then make enough to split up between the three of us. I use all my goodies for presents for friends and coworkers. This year I made these Peanut Butter Butterfinger Seven Layer Bars, the Classic Seven Layer Bars, two versions of my Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies, and my Peanut Butter cups (in regular size and mini sized!). Wendy made her classic no bake chocolate cookies and rice krispies treats and mom made homemade almond roca (our family recipe), peanut butter fudge, chocolate fudge and peanut brittle. Candy, cookies and goodies galore!
And of course the boys! Aaron (my sisters husband), James, Ethan and my Daddy! My sister has 10 acres of land and a lot going on over at her house (shop construction, alpacas, goats, dogs….) so it was fun to go run around on her property and check out all the new stuff they are doing. I am still trying to talk my sister into getting horses hehehe. Annnnnnd…..there was a special guest appearance from my stepdaughter from my previous marriage! It was so great seeing Brooke and catching up!
Isn’t she gorgeous?! All grown up! Can’t believe she’s 20-years old….where does the time go?! It was so great seeing her, catching up on life and reminiscing about old times. So many great memories. And you can bet I loaded her up with two platters of holiday goodies to take home before she left 🙂 And is that not the cutest picture of Miss G?! She actually wanted me to hold her and carry her everywhere, which is TOTALLY not like her. I loved every second of it!
Ok back to our recipe for today….these Peanut Butter Butterfinger Layer Bars. Easy, peasy just like the classic version! Fool proof my friends….fool proof!
I tried to dress these bars up with some M&M’s on top, after they came out of the oven because these bars are UGLY! But yummy so whatever….taste wins!
Let’s get baking!!
Peanut Butter Butterfingers Seven Layer BarsPrint Recipe
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 1 cup Peanut Butter Chips (I used Reese's brand)
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup salted, roasted peanuts, chopped
- 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 cup Butterfinger pieces (either from the baking aisle or chop up 2 Butterfinger candy bars)
Preheat oven to 350-degrees. Line a 9 x 13-inch baking pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. Set aside. In a small bowl, melt butter in the microwave. Pour melted butter in the prepared pan, covering the entire bottom of the pan with butter. Spread graham cracker crumbs evenly over the butter. Layer the peanut butter chips, chocolate chips and chopped peanuts evenly over the graham cracker layer. Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over all the layers. Spread the Butterfinger pieces evenly over the top of the sweetened condensed milk.
Bake in 350-degree oven for 25-minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Let bars cool completely before cutting into desired sized squares.
Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
