Graham Cracker Bars Recipe


Cooks have been focused on saving time in the kitchen for decades. I recently found a small booklet at an antique mall in Montana containing recipes for Sego Milk. Although the company went out of business in 1961, and the booklet was published in the 50s, which was a time that few housewives worked outside of the home and most cooked dinner every night, the home economist featured at the front of the booklet called the recipes contained inside “quick-and-easy’s.” The following Graham Cracker Bars are very quick-and-easy and have been adapted from that booklet for modern cooks.
””
These easy bars are especially good slightly warm since the chocolate is gooey. They are, however, very good at room temperature, and if kept in an airtight container, stay chewy and soft for several days. Graham cracker crumbs are used instead of flour and leavenings, which save lots of time. If you’re wanting something a bit special, you can cut the bars into larger squares and top them with ice cream and chocolate sauce. Yum!

32 Bars

2 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cup evaporated milk
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Spray a 9 x 13" shallow baking dish with non-stick spray.
  3. Mix the graham cracker crumbs, evaporated milk, sugar, and vanilla until combined.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips and pecans and spread in the prepared pan.
  5. Bake 30 minutes or until the bars pull from the sides of the pan.
  6. Remove from the oven and set on a rack to cool.
  7. Cut into 32 squares.
