And seriously, look at it . . . it is gorgeous.
We had this for dessert the night we had Chicken and Spiced Jam. So good.
Adapted from Better Homes and Gardens
- 6 graham crackers (rectangles) (I used some leftover homemade ones)
- 3/4 Cup rolled oats
- 1/3 Cup sugar
- 1/3 Cup Brown sugar
- 1 1/2 Tbsp flour
- 1/3 Cup butter, melted
- 1 Egg, lightly beaten
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 6 oz. chocolate chips ( I just sprinkled some on top- use as many as you want)
~Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 1 inch or higher rimmed baking sheet with tin foil, making sure the foil comes above the edge of the baking sheet. (Believe me, you will thank me for this later.)
~Arrange the graham crackers in the pan so they are all close together.
~Mix together dry ingredients, then add wet ingredients and stir until well combined.
~Spoon mixture over crackers, making sure all the crackers get some of the good stuff.
~Bake for 20-25 minutes- until the oat mixture bubbles and it lightly browned. Add some chocolate and put back in the oven for a minute or two.
~Spread melted chocolate around.
~Let cool in pan on a wire rack if you have one. When cool, use foil to take the grahams out of the pan. Remove foil and cut or break into pieces.
Note: The recipe called for you to add coarsely chopped almonds after spreading the melted chocolate. Since I am allergic, I opted to avoid the almonds, but for those of you who can digest almonds without pain- I think it would be a nice addition to the dessert.
