Eleanor's Seven Layer Squares

Recipe by  

"This is a recipe that my Mum has made as long as I can remember. She is well known in the towns she's lived in in Canada for these squares. Every wedding reception that was ever held in her church included a pan of these squares and they are the first item everyone goes for when dessert is served. Rich and delectable! I served them at my wedding on March 1st of 2008."

LOVE these things! The only change I made was to leave out the nuts, as I'm not a fan. They do stick, so I used a non-stick pan sprayed with cooking spray, came right out with no problem.

OMG!!!! This is the best recipe ever, if I could give it more stars I would. So easy, and so yummy, it did not last long that is for sure!

So very easy, and so very yummy. I sent them out for Mother's Day. My Mom and Sis loved them. I told them to heat them up in the microwave for a few seconds before eating since they were oh so gooey good when they came out.

I really enjoy this recipe because you can switch it up to suit your personal tastes. I omitted the walnuts because I'm allergic and I didn't have any coconut, so I used a combination of peanut butter chips, milk chocolate chips, and white chocolate chips with the sweetened condensed milk. I ate almost the entire pan and my best friend requested the recipe. Needless to say, these are versatile and terrific squares. Thanks!

So easy to make, worked out very nicely to have ready for the kids after school.

These are so good. My grandmother has this exact recipe and we have been making it for years. It is fun to experiment with the new flavored chips you find at the grocery store, like peanut butter, mint or cherry.

This is the same as my mother's recipe, except we add the walnuts before the coconut. Then we drizzle the sweeten condensed milk over the coconut. I just wanted to check a recipe on ALLRECIPES for the cooking temp, etc. It came out perfectly! My husband remembers his mother making theses when he was a kid. (He is 76 years old.) So I guess this recipe has been around awhile.
