Feeling Fabulous?

MJ's Fabulousity Squares: see the bit o'Ritz in the center?

You will with a pan of my “Fabulousity Squares.”  Containing just 3 – count ’em – 3 ingredients, this easy-peasy recipe is prepped & baked in less than 30 minutes!

Got a reunion, pot luck or BBQ to go to? Offer to bring dessert.  These offer a sweet combination of buttery crunchy goodness with just a hint of chocolate. They’re easy to make, travel/freeze well (no melting) and the fun comes when you challenge their various admirers to guess the ingredients (trust me, they will never suspect what’s in these bars).

Ready?

Here’s what you need to make them:

  • 1 bag Heath OR Skor bar pieces (you’ll find them with the Chocolate chips)
  • 1 can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 sleeves of Ritz crackers, crumbled. *
  • Optional: you can add a 1/4 cup of chopped nuts if you wish but they will make the bars a tad bit dry. I prefer to skip the nuts so as to achieve gooey greatness!

*To crumble the crackers I dump them into a large ziplock bag and pound them with a plastic tumbler.  It’s a great way to relieve the day’s frustrations 🙂 and is also a fun way for  kids to help. You could also use a pastry roller but I don’t have one ..hence the plastic tumbler.

Mix all ingredients and press into a well greased 9 x 13 pan. Bake at 325 for 20 min. Let cool and cut into squares.

Now .. let the guessing begin!
