Chewy & Delish 5-Layer Bar Cookies


Good morning, beautiful people! I hope y’all are having a fab week. Mine has been pretty quiet. Moving to the country has made me even more of a homebody. I’ve been busy unpacking boxes and I’m *trying* to get the bedrooms unpacked this week. I’m also working on making treats to give to family and friends. I pulled out Memaw’s old Cotton Country cookbook from 1972 and I found a recipe that I wanted to try. Of course, I modified it just a bit because that’s how I roll.

I’ve made these Chewy & Delish 5-Layer Bars twice and my family gives them rave reviews. They aren’t sickly sweet. They are chewy…kind of caramelized…and they have a really nice sweet and salty flavor. I make mine in my Pampered Chef bar pan, but you can also use a 13×9 baking dish. It may need a few extra minutes of bake time, just because the bars will be thicker. 🙂

Chewy 5-Layer Bars are fabulous for making with kids. Ridley loves helping me in the kitchen, so this is a winner!

Happy Christmas Baking!




  1. We call these Magic Cookie Bars and they are my husbands all time favorite at Christmas time! 🙂 Merry Christmas!

  2. We have made these for years too and love them… I have even sprinkled cranberries on them for a variation 🙂 Love how super quick they are… Have a fabulous day, Myra!

  3. We made those a lot when the cookbook was new. Yummy! Have you been able to get gluten-free graham crackers?
