Of all the 7 layer bars I have made in the past month, these gluten free peppermint 7 layer bars are my favorite. I am a total sucker for candy canes!
These 7 layer bars are full of peppermint flavor. I found Andes Peppermint Crunch Candy Chips at our grocery store this week and I knew exactly what recipe I wanted to create around them. (These are the ones in the red bag.)
I know I have gone on and on in previous posts about how much I love 7 layer bars. They are my cookie bar weakness. We all have to have that one thing that is our downfall, and 7 layer bars are apparently mine. 🙂
I have created several fun flavors of 7 layer bars lately and I am really excited to share this new recipe with you.
