Still cooking....

Although I am not present on Blogger as I once was, I am still busy with cooking.

This was a Christmas gift from a very special friend, so it just made sense that I try something from it.

Saucepan Brownies!! I didn't even have to turn on the oven!

2 2/3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (this is more than a 12-oz. bag, so be sure to have more on  
1 cup evaporated milk (or half-and-half cream)
3 cups finely crushed vanilla wafers (about 96 - 11 ounce box)
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup confectioner's sugar
1/2 t. salt

Additional evaporated milk - 2 teaspoons

Heat chocolate chips and first amount of evaporated milk in saucepan on medium-low, stirring often,  until chocolate is almost melted.  Remove from heat.  Stir until smooth.  Reserve 1/2 cup in small bowl.

Add next 5 ingredients to saucepan.  Mix well.  Press firmly into greased 9 x 9 inch pan.

Stir second amount of evaporated milk into reserved chocolate mixture.  Spread evenly over brownie layer.  Chill  until set. Cuts into 36 squares.

Warning!!  These are addictive!!

  2. Well, Sister, you've been gone for quite awhile, and this is a great way to make a smashing return! You know I'm going to have to try these soon. Have a thoroughly thrilling Thursday! Love you!

  3. Nellie, no bake brownies? These look amazing! Do you think since we just returned from our walk that I could have one? I have some left over half and half in the fridge that I could use making these. Thanks for a wonderful recipe! xo ♥

  8. I'm already heavily addicted to sugar and chocolate. This looks like a sugar junky heaven.
