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!!
