My mom made these all the time growing up and they are my favorite however the recipe here is a little off. Use Sweetened and Condensed milk not evaporated milk. Also save some of the crust to sprinkle on the top and bake the crust for about 15 minutes before adding the rest to it that makes it more of a bar base and not so mushy!
The proportions are totally wrong and leave you with a soupy mess not bars. Additionally condensed milk and evaporated milk are TWO DIFFERENT things. Condensed works evaporated doesn't. You get the tard award for writing this so totally wrong recipe.
This recipe turns out perfectly even with evaporated milk in a 9x13 pan. I usually double the recipe and use a 16x12x1 in. cookie sheet. I also leave out the walnuts b/c of personal preference. Granted the filling can be a little tedious(constant stirring) but its minimal effort for an incredibly tasty bar. I HAVE to bring these to every event I attend or risk being shunned by friends and family alike!
I followed the directions except 1) I used a can of condensed milk instead of the evaporated milk and I ommitted the 1/4 cup sugar in the filling and 2) I cooked the bars in a 9 x 13 pan and 3) I precooked the base for about 12 minutes. They turned out okay but they use SO much butter that I won't make them again.
It certainly does need the 9x13 and by reading the other reviews I knew this. My try at this turned out very much like a moist cake-like bar when it came out of the oven-we can never wait for things to cool- and the next day settled into a gooey chocolatey bar cookie. Both ways were excellent! We like to eat it with whipped topping.
Delicious!! Yes they do crumble a bit but I'd rather have a tasty bar than a tidy and less tasty bar. I increased all ingredients by 50% and baked this on a heavy 10x17 cookie sheet for 25 minutes. This is a keeper.
This recipe turns out great if you use a larger pan. I took these to a holiday party and everyone asked for the recipe. And anyone who thinks the filling is too much trouble either doesn't work often with chocolate or is incredibly lazy. It only took about 5 minutes.
