ghiradelli seven layer brownie bars

my standard brownie recipe is a box of ghiradelli brownie mix {under $2 at aldi or walmart} with a half bag of chocolate chips stirred in the batter before baking- the result is amazing! i thought i would make a batch for a picnic this weekend but noticed a recipe on the back of the brownie box for seven layer brownie bars. these are just like the old "magic bars" but using a brownie mix instead of graham cracker crumbs. it was fun to change it up a little bit & they were super easy and much better than  plan ol' brownies!
Seven Layer Brownie Bars

{by the way, they will stick like glue to the pan
 so be sure to line the pan with parchment or non-stick foil first!}

1 box ghiradelli double chocolate brownie mix
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
