Here’s a great and easy recipe someone made for a recent party. Yum! What’s your easy go to recipe for the holidays?
Chocolate Walnut Crumb Bars
(makes about 30 bars)
1 cup (2 sticks) margarine, softened
2 cups flour
½ cup sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
2 cups (12 oz) semi-sweet chocolate morsels, divided
1 ¼ cups (14 oz) Carnation Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped walnuts
Beat margarine in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in flour, sugar and salt until crumbly. With floured fingers, press 2 cups crumb mixture onto bottom of greased 13 X 9 inch baking pan; reserve remaining mixture. Bake in pre-heated 350 degree oven for 10 – 12 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
Warm 1 ½ cups morsels and sweetened condensed milk in small, heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring until smooth. Stir in vanilla extract. Spread over hot crust.
Stir in walnuts and remaining morsels into reserved crumb mixture, sprinkle over chocolate filling. Bake in 350 degree oven for 25 – 30 minutes or until center is set. Cool in pan on wire rack.
A few more gift pairs of earrings. I know they are similar to other favorites from this year, but they are fun to make! I can’t believe there is only one more post with the earrings. It’s been so eye opening – I started making earrings, now I’m filling orders for infinity scarves and having trunk shows. I really wanted to get an Etsy shop up but ran out of time. Next year! My inspiration for all of this is SJ Designs Jewelry and her year long challenge. I can’t wait to see where this all leads next year!
