Mouthwatering Monday: Seven Layers of Heaven

Okay y’all. The pictures I took are just not doing this ooey, gooey, crispy, crunchy tonguegasmically amazing dessert justice. This dish is absolutely spectacular.

Seven Layers of Heaven
*adapted from a Ghirardelli recipe

*1 box of Chocolate Brownie Mix
* 3/4 C. butterscotch chips
* 3/4 C. dark chocolate chips
* 1 1/4 C. coconut flakes ( I like to toast mine first)
* 1 1/4 C. walnut chips
* 1/2 stick unsalted butter, melted
* 3/4 of a (14 oz) can of sweetened condensed milk

The What To Do:

Preheat oven to 350 F.
Pour your melted butter into a 9X13 baking dish. Make sure the entire base of the dish is covered. Sprinkle the brownie mix over the butter. Top this with the butterscotch and dark chocolate chips. Next layer the walnuts and the (toasted) coconut. Finally, drizzle the sweetened condensed milk over the whole thing.
Pop in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until the edges begin to bubble.
Let cool completely before you cut.
If you’re impatient like me… use a spoon, dig in and relish in the sinful delight of this absolutely tonguegasmically spectacular dessert.

  1. I gotta stop dropping my cards first thing in the morning!!! The wonderful food related blogs drive me to distraction.

    Too bad we can actually *smell* the images. ;D


  2. OH MAH GAH! That looks incredible. And I’d be right there with you with a spoon in my hand. Heck with waiting for it to cool!!!

  3. You have some talent there! Is it the cooking, the photography or both? Because I don’t much like chocolate – and I would still dive headfirst into that gooey goodness.

  4. I ♥ this dessert!

    Funny – I was going to say I need to make it again soon, then realized that MY post today is about how I have this bizzare concept of actually being domestic in my head that simply isn't true. Instead I'll just say "YUMMY! I love eating those things!" ;o)

  5. I hate when blogger eats my comment, and then I have to remember what I just wrote – LOL!

    That looks AMAZING. I can’t wait to try it!!!

  6. You used such a nice name for them. I've heard them called Neiman Marcus bars, Orgasm Bars & Better than Sex Bars.

  7. Now, this one looks and sounds so much better than one with garlic….must remain healthy…must remain healthy!

  8. Oh my hell.

    This looks so good I almost started licking my screen.

    I making this tonight. Absofreakinglutely TONIGHT.

  9. BTW…I went and bought EVERYTHING except I THOUGHT I had condensed milk but NO! NO I DO NOT!


  10. I made these this weekend, and I’m still trying to figure out where I went wrong, because while they turned out absolutely marvelous on top, the bottom was just a pan of dry brownie mix… I’m thinking maybe I should have upped the butter, or made sure the milk mixed in better. Any thoughts?

    I’m still totally eating them, and loving it – but they probably would be better if I had managed to get the brownies to cook…

    Leave it to me to mess up something that is supposed to be simple!!! 🙂

  11. Hmmm. Mine was crunchy, but not dryish crunchy. could it have cooked too long?
    I think that what I might try next time is making the brownies, cooking about 3/4 through, taking them out and then adding all the goodies and continuing the cooking from there.
