An interesting combination of two yummy flavors. Haven't made these yet but they sound delicious. Found on the Hershey's website.
- 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2⁄3 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 cup cold butter or 3⁄4 cup margarine
- 2 eggs
- 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk)
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons maple flavoring
- 2 cups chopped nuts
- 1 cup Hershey's semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Heat oven to 350°F.
- Stir together flour, sugar and salt in large bowl; cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in 1 beaten egg. Press mixture evenly onto bottom of ungreased 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Bake 25 minutes.
- Meanwhile, beat sweetened condensed milk, remaining 1 egg and maple flavor in medium bowl; stir in nuts. Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over prepared crust. Gently spread nut mixture evenly over chocolate. Return to oven.
- Bake 25 minutes or until golden. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars. Store tightly covered at room temperature. 24 to 36 bars.
Easy to prepare, with a flavor that (I thought, anyway) improved the next day. My only problem was that the bake time was a little too long for my oven; the edges became quite carmelized and it was difficult to get many of the bars out of the pan. I may try making these once without the chocolate, just to enjoy a nice, nutty shortbread bar... and another time with the chocolate but using vanilla extract instead of maple, to see what I like best. This was very much enjoyed in our house. Thanks for sharing!
