I came across this recipe around 10 years ago whilst living in the US and adapted it from the '7 layer magic cookie bar' recipe that it once was.
Everyone seems to love these, and they are very moreish, which is one of the reasons why I don't make them very often, usually just at Christmas. It's such a simple recipe which is made up of layers, as the original name suggests. No mixing is required, just a but of crushing and chopping.
I made them to take to a tweetup today at the lovely Julia's (A Wannabie Foodie) - but sadly we never made it as Jack is unwell. Oh well, all the more for me!
125g Digestive biscuits, crushed
397g can of condensed milk
100g milk chocolate chips
100g white chocolate chips
100g salted peanuts, chopped
Pre-heat the over to 160 degrees C.
Lightly grease (or use cooking spray) a 13 x 9 " baking pan or baking dish.
Melt the butter in the pan in the oven.
Pour the crushed biscuits evenly over the melted butter.
Pour the condensed milk evenly over the layer of biscuits.
Layer evenly with the remaining ingredients.
Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes, until lightly golden.
Don't worry about those bubbly bits around the edge - they are the best bits - gooey & chewy!
Loosen from the sides of the pan whilst still warm and press down with the back of a fork. Allow to cool in the pan and cut into bars. You may need to firm them up in the fridge before removing from the pan.
