Ready In:




  • Preheat oven to 375°f. Combine crumbs and butter, press firmly on bottom of 13x9 inch baking pan. Or for thicker bars you can use a 9x9 inch pan.
  • Bake 8 minutes. Remove from oven.
  • Reduce oven temperature to 350 f.
  • Melt condensed milk, semi-sweet chocolate chips and vanilla together in a small saucepan.
  • Spread chocolate mixture over prepared crust.Let cool for 5-10 minutes.
  • Top with remaining chocolate chips, then nuts.
  • Press down firmly.I use a heat safe rubber spatula for this, if you use your hands expect to get sticky.
  • Bake 25-30 minutes, use rubber spatula to press topping down again half way through cooking.
  • Cool completely. Cut into bars. Store loosely covered at room temperature.

  1. These are very rich, but so good. I cut them into sm squares rather than bars. I will definitely be making these again for my holiday gift trays. Thank you for sharing the recipe. Made for Spring '08 Pick A Chef.
  2. Thanks J&R's Mom! Excellent for the cholcate lover with unlimited possibilities. I used a mixture of mini peanut butter cups, milk chcolate/caramel swirl chips, milk chocolate chips and white chocolagte chips. For nuts, I used cashew halves. This was a big hit. It will be fun to experiment with other combinations.


I am a stay at home mom with 2 boys. They are my pride and joy, and I am always trying to find new healthy foods to feed them. I love to cook, and my family loves to eat!!! So I spend a lot of my time trying new recipes out on them. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
