Today's recipe is all about simple and easy and you couldn't get more simple or easy than this recipe. ThisÂ recipe has been in my family for years and was given to my momÂ by her favorite aunt, Bicki, which was the original name for these bars. I think I've made them just as long as my mom has now. My family expects me to make these every year and, being the good Mom that I am, I do just that. 🙂
They are the simplest bars to make for the holidaysÂ and I'veÂ passed this recipe on to numerous people who've said they can't bake at all and they are amazed when they actually turn out so good.
All you need is a large bowl, a square baking dish, graham cracker crumbs, chocolate chips and a can of condensed milk. Pour them all in the bowl and mix. It will be a very thick mixture. Do not add anything else to the batter! Pat into a greased and floured baking dish and bake.
When you take them out of the oven you might not think they are done, but after 20-25 minutes, believe me, they are. Let cool then turn out onto a cutting board and cut into squares. Pop them into a ziploc bag filled with powdered sugar and shake.
You have successfully made the most yummy, chocolaty squares of goodness ever! You might want to get your piece now as kids and big kids alike (umm, I wonder who that is?) will gobble them up.
These are great bars to mail to relatives and friends, put in a cookie tin or serve on your cookie trays. Hope you enjoy!
