Magic Layer Bars - - 25 Days of Christmas, Cookie Style

Day 13:  25 Days of Christmas – Cookie Style

Even though this recipe is pretty standard and can be found from various places.  I remember this bar from my younger years when my Grandma would make around the holidays.  The only difference between hers and this one is hers didn’t have butterscotch chips.  I really like the addition of butterscotch chips to the recipe.  My husband isn’t even a fan of coconut, but loves these bars!  These are super easy, and a perfect addition to any cookie platter!
