Chocolate Mint Seven Layer Bars

chocmint7In today’s episode, we’ll discuss the one time when a creepy man told me he had a Hayley fan club.

Yep, you heard me. My very own fan club, possibly run by a man with a greasy ponytail and a muscle tee.

Gee. Awesome.

I mean, when I was a kid, I kinda was jealous that Mary-Kate and Ashley had a fan club (which, I’ll have you know, I was and STILL AM a member of–I have the card to prove it) and I wanted my own. However, I also had this thing where I’ve always loathed making friends so having a fan club never quite worked in my favor.

Still, I never imagined the day I’d be told I had a fan club of my own.. started and run by aforementioned creepy man. A creepy man who told me I was “pretty popular” and smiled brightly at a suggestion that we should throw a party in my honor.

Uhhhhhh. This is where I curse scientists that disappearing potion doesn’t exist. I mean, it’s basically 2013 and we don’t even have hovercars yet. The least y’all could do with your time is make a disappearing potion where I drink it when I’m being threatened by a hairy slimeball and can magically disappear.

So ANYWAY. Now that my secret fan club is out, I’m all wary of everyone who comes into my work, wondering if they’re like, the treasurer or something. And what do they talk about during meetings? Do I want to know? Did they make buttons or pins? Or, ew, business cards? Are they reading this right now? Please don’t hurt me. 

Basically, I’m scuuuurred. And when I’m happy, sad, mad, excited, threatened, furious, depressed or scared, I eat. Food is my security blanket when I’m surrounded by a scary fan club.

014And today’s comfort food of choice is Chocolate Mint Seven Layer Bars. I knoooow I sound like a broken record–I’ve had several seven layer bar recipes in the past month. But they’re seriously SO brainless and foolproof to make, and they taste SO incredibly delicious that I can’t.stop.making.them. You could say I have a secret seven layer bar fan club. I’m the VP :)

Now let’s kick off our meeting with some food, shall we?

017I prooooomise I won’t have another seven layer bar recipe within the next, ohhhh, week or so. After that, I can’t guarantee I can resist my obsession for much longer. These bars are SO awesome and I know you’ll love them! They aren’t nicknamed ‘magic’ bars for nothing!

Happy Baking!

  3. YUMMMMMM omg I’m in love. Chocolate + mint = heaven.

  4. Chocolate Mint seven layer bars GOOD. Creepy guy. BAD.

  5. I call your bluff. Let’s see the Mary Kate and Ashely Olson fan club membership card. What are the perks?

  6. #1-YUMMY YUMMY MINTY CHOCOLATEY BARS!
    #2-Whaaaaa???? Like…a fan club for your blog?? Or just you as a human being? Huh? Who is this strange creepy man. Ickkk

  7. These look fantastic! They’d definitely make me feel better after dealing with a creepster or two. =) your fan club president sounds bizarro!

  8. This is why I <3 you and curse you (ok, not really) at the same time. These look irrestible if they were in my world right now.

  9. Lol I am still laughing from reading this post. You’re hilarious! I once had a creepy admirer. Although it didn’t get to the level of fan club creepy, he did sing “Bailey’s really sexy, she really turns me on” to the tune of Kenny Chesney’s “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy.” Weird. On a brighter note, these bars look amazeballs :D Can I join your secret seven layer bar fan club?

  10. Ok – a couple things: 1. these look so stinken good and i want one NOW, 2. i love these adorable little snowmen dishes and where did you get them 3. do the Olsen twins seriously still have a fan club??? I was a fan back in the day and i remember waiting very impatiently for my packages and magazines (Funzines or something?) to arrive! Wow, I’m weird.

  11. Well, you’re definitely cool enough to have your own fan club…but that guy sounds creepy. Don’t let him know you make super awesome goodies like these chocolate mint 7-layer bars or he’ll be following you around forever! I want to face plant in that first picture–awesome!!!

  12. Okay….so that’s creepy. I’m going to start a non-creepy Hayley fan club. Anyone in???

    And 7 layer bars are awesome. I could make them every day and be happy. They’re easy…and they have a crust! This version is spectacular.

  13. I’m with Dorothy. You deserve a fan club sans the creepster. I’m so in :)
    These bars are awesome! I could eat the whole pan! You are the queen of magic bars, and I love you for it!
