Melting chocolate, chewy coconut, and crunchy nuts are layered over a buttery graham cracker crust to make these Hello Dolly Bars.

Hello Dolly Bars

My kids and husband devoured these bars lightning fast. Luckily, they’re very easy to make as I suspect they’re going to be popular in our home for a lot of years to come.

Like the Chocolate Revel Bars, Monster Cookie Bars, and Gingerbread Bars, the Hello Dolly Bars freeze beautifully and are great choices for make-ahead holiday baking.

Hello Dolly Bars

Have you heard of Hello Dolly Bars? When I spied that name, I simply had to try the recipe. This dessert is another recipe success from my beloved stack of Amish cookbooks.

I don’t know just why it brings me so much joy to bake from vintage cookbooks, but it really is fun!

These bars are also known as Magic Cookie Bars. While often confused with 7 layer bars (count the layers, there are six layers here, not seven) those bars usually include a handful or two of chocolate M&M candies as well.

Hello Dolly Bars are chewy, sweet, nutty treats

If you’re a fan of vintage desserts, you’ll want to try the Gooey Butter Cake – and the Gooey Chocolate Butter Cake too.

My family’s Old Fashioned Rhubarb Pie is a classic recipe that we make at least once every summer.

The Overnight Coffee Cake is another Amish recipe favorite along with these Amish Sugar Cookies.

And for an unexpected treat, these Snickers Stuffed Amish Peanut Butter Cookies (yes, the Amish eat candy bars) are a huge success any time they’re made.
