So, here in Tweed they always have a lot of food on 50% off at the wee grocery store. It's for many reasons, usually because we're a super small town, and they can't sell everything they need to before the expiration date, so, on clearance it goes-and I swoop in and buy it! Go Dutch!
Anywho, recently they had a few dented cans of sweetened condensed milk for $1.50! Whaaaa? Yes, I know that a dented can can (haha, can can) release chemicals into the food, and poison you, but it's sweetened condensed milk, it wasn't doing you any favours to begin with!!! Sheesh!
With that, I ask you what I should make with said sweetened condensed milk for my treat day this weekend!?! I have 3 different squares that have been on my (super un-healthy) Food Board on Pinterest, and I neeeeeds to try me one of them!
Some of my treat days I have nothing in mind and am happy noshing on a Cadbury Bubbly Bar, but other treat days I look forward to immensely, and this is one of those times! The SCM is calling to me! :)
2 of these recipes are totally new to me, and involve some of my favourite ingredients-chocolate, marshmallows, and maple! The third bar is one I've made before, and surprisingly has fruit (jam) in it, but man oh man, it's goooood. And I am long overdue in making a another batch!
So, I'll let you see each one, then you need to help me decide which one to make this weekend!!! Don't forget to click on the green highlighted words to send yourself through Internet Land to get to the other blogs to see the recipes!
Maple Chocolate Walnut Bars
Mary at One Perfect Bite has created these Maple Chocolate Walnut Bars, and they look soooo good, don't they? Yumm-o! They also have a fall feel to them somehow, and make me want to test drive them as a possible treat to bring to any upcoming Thanksgiving get-togethers.
You bake the crust, sprinkle some chocolate chips on it, then beat the sweetened condensed milk with an egg and some maple flavouring (or real maple!), add in the nuts, spread it over your base, and bake it! Easy peasy!
Rosie's Raspberry Bars
Here are the bars I have made before, and let me tell you, no one, and I mean NO ONE has ever not liked these Raspberry Bars! I'm not kidding! Sharon (my beautiful sister) has the recipe for these crazy delicious squares over at her blog, The Good Kind of Crazy.
A fantastic shortbread base is baked, then has raspberry jam spread over it, then the sweetened condensed milk poured over that, then coconut pressed into the milk and baked until perfect! Perfect!
Marshmallow Chocolate Chip Shortbread Magic Bars
Yes, I know the name of these is a little laboured, but whaaaaaaa???? How delicious does this look! Drool.....
The lady behind The Picky Palate has created a bar that only someone as coo-coo as me for marshmallows and chocolate could have invented!
These bars have a chocolate chip shortbread base that is baked, then sweetened condensed milk poured over it, then chocolate chips and marshmallows all baked to campfire perfecting to top if off! Yowza! Thumbs up!
So, whad'ya think I should do?
I am a youngest child, and classically cannot make decisions easily, so I ask you for your help! P.S. anyone who reads this who lives in Belleville or Tweed will get a sampling of whichever one I decide to make!!! Incentive to help me! :)
Alright, well, that's all for today! I hope you help me decide which bars to make, and I also hope you check out the other blogs and perhaps decide to make yourself some squares too!
