Pumpkin 7 Layer Bars

by Carrie on November 8, 2009

It’s been a boring few weeks in our kitchen. No baby yet but just not big desire to cook, I can’t seem to stand for as long before I get really sore, I am counting down the time until I get back into the kitchen, for now we have been living off of kraft mac and cheese, pancakes, frozen pizza, and take out.

I made these for a Halloween potluck at work, I made them in a cake pan and cut them figuring it would be easier then doing individual for work. These were excellent, they had a slight pumpkin flavor but not over pumpkiny. I have changed the recipe to a 9 X 13 pan, if you want to make them individually go to Pick Palates blog.

Pumpkin Magic Bars (From: Picky Palate)

  • Pumpkin 7 Layer Bars1/2 Cup melted butter
  • 1 1/2  Cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 4 oz softened cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 Cups pumpkin puree
  • 6 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 Cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 Cup coarsely chopped cashews (I omitted)
  • 1 1/2 Cups sweetened shredded coconut
  • 8 oz sweetened condensed milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Place melted butter and graham cracker crumbs into a bowl; mix to combine.  Press into the bottom of  pan.  Bake for 12 minutes then remove from oven.

In a bowl beat the pumpkin, softened cream cheese, sugar and cinnamon until smooth.  Spoon evenly over each graham cracker crust, about 2 small spoonfuls.  Next layer chocolate chips evenly over pumpkin layer following with cashews, coconut and condensed milk.  Bake for 40-45 minutes or until top is golden brown.  Remove and let cool.
