Chocolate Walnut Bars Plus Earrings

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!

    I love this recipe and the earrings!! I think I’ve made a version of those bars before and they turn out really good every time.
    I’ll be the first one in line to buy your earrings on etsy, Amy! You have good talent!
    Have a merry Christmas!

    Oooh, those bars sound super yummy! I’m so happy for you (and proud of you!) with what you have achieved with your jewelry this year… and I’m humbled to be considered an inspiration. I hope you know that you were always an inspiration to me in the library world! Happy holidays and I’ll see you for one more installment of 2015′s New Earring Monday!
