How To Make Fudgie Scotch Squares
Easy Dessert Bars - A Sweet Treat
Fudgie Scotch Squares are by far my favorite holiday treat. If you are looking for a simple condensed milk recipe, these are a very easy dessert bar to make. When we were kids, this was one of the holiday desserts that we could help my mom prepare. She would be the one to put them into and remove them from the oven but we could do the rest.
When I first moved out into an apartment the oven that came with the apartment did not work very well. I tried cooking brownies but they ended up burnt on the outside and raw in the middle. This ruled out me being able to make the Fudgie Scotch Squares for myself. So one year when my sister had unexpected bills to pay and couldn't afford to spend much for Christmas, I asked her to make me a batch of these fabulous dessert bars, instead of buying me anything. Since I hadn't had any for a long time, they were one of the best Christmas presents I have ever been given.
Many people have nut allergies these days, so if you need to you can remove the walnuts from the recipe. You can make other changes as well such as changing the Chipit flavors. You could use chocolate mint, reese's, or white chocolate chipits as substitutes. Personally I prefer the original recipe, but you can be creative if that is what you like to do. If you know someone with a sweet tooth they will be sure to love these dessert bars as much as I do.

Kitchen Equipment Needed:
- Large mixing bowl
- Measuring cups
- 9 inch square pan
- 1 plastic baggie
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
2. Add 1 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs into a large mixing bowl.

4. Add 1 cup of Butterscotch Chipits.
5. Add 1 cup of Semi Sweet Chocolate Chipits

7. Grease very well, a 9 inch square pan
A little trick I learned from my sister - put a sandwich baggie over your hand to grease the pan. That way you don't have to get your hands all greasy. When you are done, pull the baggie inside out to trap all the grease inside.
8. Mix all the ingredients in the bowl. Then spread the mixture evenly into the greased pan.
9. Place the pan into the oven and cook it for 25-30 minutes.
10. When done cooking remove it from the oven and leave to cool for at least 45 minutes before cutting.
11. Once they have cooled, cut them into 1 1/2 inch squares.
