Hello Dolly Bars

Nothing says Christmas time to me like Hello Dolly bars.  I was curious as to why they are called Hello Dolly bars, but really could not come across the reason other than there was a play in the 1950’s called Hello Dolly.  It seems they are also called Magic Bars or even 7 Layer bars in other areas of the country where they add a 7th layer to the bars by adding butterscotch chips.  No matter what part of the country you are from or what you want to call them, I call them delicious.  My mom always made them around the holidays, but they are super delicious no matter what time of year you want to make them.
