It’s the end of another week! I think that calls for some chocolate. And since we’re having chocolate, we may as well make it triple chocolate! Triple chocolate in the form of gooey, rich seven layer bars (or magic bars as some call them). Dark chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, and white chocolate combine for a decadent dessert that only dirties one bowl and is out of the oven in 25 minutes!
Growing up seven layer bars were my dad’s birthday dessert, and I’ve always enjoyed making them because of how easy they are and how versatile they can be. Well, his birthday was Wednesday, and even though we weren’t there to celebrate with him, I still made seven layer bars. It was a good excuse to have a chocolaty dessert sitting on the counter! (Don’t worry Dad, I’ve saved some for when we see you next!)
Since he likes dark chocolate, I decided to switch things up from our usual bars and make them with dark chocolate, semi-sweet, and white chocolate and skip the usual usual peanut butter or butterscotch chips that some recipes call for. As much as I love peanut butter and chocolate together, I didn’t miss the peanut butter chips at all. Sometimes you just need a chocolate filled dessert, and these triple chocolate seven layer bars are it!
