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!

  1. Wish I had bought the ingredients before I got up to the cottage for vacation. They sound like a dessert I would actually like! Thanks for sharing…maybe you will make my recipe book this year. 🙂 MJ’s Fabulousity Bars has a ring to it.

    • well .. the ingredients are pretty easy to find. This is a dessert bar that pleases many – it has the consistency of a rice krispie treat but is not as sweet, it’s more buttery/carmelly. They are a perfect bit of sweetness at the end of a big meal or even later when you just want “a little something.” If you’re going to include my recipes be sure to try my “Game Day Brownies.” You can find them here https://emjayandthem.wordpress.com/2011/02/06/game-day-brownies/ MJ

  2. Sounds great. I might try them even though I am an awful cook.

  3. 3 ingredients – no layers – MJ, I think this is a recipe I could manage successfully! Thanks for this!. I’ve added the 3 ingredients to my grocery list. Consider your suggestion heeded.

  4. Having a family reunion at our house on August 6; this looks perfect!

  5. Ok, I’m making this recipe tomorrow. Anything w/ sweetened condensed milk is yummy to me, and I love salty/sweet combinations! Thanks for sharing!

    • It’s super easy .. if you wish to add nuts, I recommend chopped dry roasted peanuts or roasted sun flower seeds. Then you really get the sweet/salty combo going. Either way, they’re yummy. Hope you enjoy .. MJ

  6. On the grocery list. Easy-peasy here we come. Thank you.

  7. Yummmm! This looks delicious! Thanks for sharing, MJ 🙂

  8. Your new header is marvelous!

  9. Holy Cow, this looks so good!

    • And they are! Take them to your next school party, shower, potluck etc and when people come around with a dreamy look in their eye asking who made these … you reply happily “I did … and you’ll never guess what’s in them!”

      Fun 🙂 MJ

  10. MJ, isn’t it funny that we both had recipes on our blogs simultaneously! It just shows how much we are influenced by the happenings around us – barbecues, reunions, picnics. And your bars sound divine! I will definitely be making them. Thanks for sharing it.

    • I know! 🙂 There are lots of gatherings in summer and who doesn’t love a good potato salad recipe or a the sweet crunchy goodness of a sweet treat? Yum! MJ

  11. Mmmm, these look fabulous. Saved this to Evernote!

  12. I LOVE easy recipes! Thanks for sharing!
