Seven-layer bars has to be one of my favorite bars. The buttery graham cracker crust, the toasted coconut and three different kinds of chocolate chips make up the perfect bar.

These bars are super easy to make. You just keep layering the toppings and then pour sweetened condensed milk all over it.
