Gluten Free, Nut Free Hello Dolly Bars

Hello Dolly Bars are so easy to make gluten free and nut free! The perfect crowd pleasing dessert!
This is a fun dessert. It’s so easy to make. Almost too easy! (For my waistline I mean). I actually made this batch without even dirtying a bowl. I combined the cookie crumbs and the butter in a freezer Ziplock bag. After I had squeezed it out into the baking pan, I just sprinkled the chocolate chips and coconut on top and poured on the sweetened condensed milk and baked it. I made the crumbs in a personal sized blender, but you could easily make them just by crumbling cookies with your hands or rolling a bag full of cookies with a clean rolling pin. I used Kinnikinnick S’moreables for my crumbs because they’re both gluten and nut free.
This would actually make a neat gift for a gluten free friend if you packaged up the ingredients inside a parchment lined baking pan. It would also be a fun pre-assembled baking activity for visiting grandkids.

    • They’re also called “magic bars” and “seven layer bars” (not sure why 7 layers, one of the seven layers is nuts, but I still only count 5 total. :)

  2. I made these with Ghirardelli chips and Enjoy Life’s Crunch Sugar Cookies for the crust and it was amazing! Definitely the favorite this year and I’ll no doubt be making them again and again.

  3. Literally just made these and took my first bite! I am in heaven the ratio of all the ingredients is perfect! So happy right now! I will be recommending this to all gluten free-ers! It is so nice when we can actually eat something that is soooo good it makes you forget it’s gluten free!
