Hey everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I feel much better! Caught up on a lot of sleep and had some fun relaxing times with family and friends. I might say I feel differently around 3:00 p.m. (why is that always the time I seem to need a nap?) but right now, I feel good.
Today I'm going to share a recipe from my Grandmother called Yummy Squares. She would make them for us all the time and we'd always end up sneaking them until they were all gone. They are DE-licious. And, very sentimental for me, since I miss my Grandma very much! Every time I make them I feel a bit closer to her. I hope you enjoy!
24 small squares (or 12 rectangles) of graham crackers
1 can of sweet and condensed milk
1 bag of semi-sweet (or milk) chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups of chopped walnuts
Here's my favorite part (it was when I was a kid, and it still is now!) My kids love this part, too....Take your graham cracker squares and put them into a large zip-lock bag.
Seal the bag and then take your rolling pin and smash, roll, and squish those squares until they are dust. Ok, well, not that much, but until they look like this....
Now throw all your ingredients together and mix thoroughly.
Take and 8 x 8 inch pan (spray liberally with your non-stick spray) and spread out your mixture. Use your fingers to pat it flat and get it nice and even in your pan.
Cook on 300 degrees for 35-40 minutes. The sides should be lightly brown and the top will pretty much look the same. Just make sure it's a little stiff and not to mushy. Let cool for 1/2 an hour (sometimes I even stick it in the freezer to help this process out).
Cut into small 1 x 1 inch squares...and gobble, gobble, gobble....
Oh, they are delicious....I admit, I ate a few....
But, I'm willing to share.....
These are great and easy to make! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Have a wonderful week!
