Graham Cracker Bars

I must have made this recipe a dozen times or more.  It's that good.  And different enough to keep your tasters guessing.

Graham Cracker Bars

1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup butter (I use 1/2 cup and it's fine)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 square unsweetened chocolate, melted
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
9 (or so) graham crackers
3/4 cup chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugar until smooth.  Add eggs, beating well.  Add milk/vanilla combo alternately with mixture of flour, salt & soda.  Blend thoroughly after each addition.

Place 1/3 of the batter in a separate bowl.  Add the melted chocolate and the walnuts.  Spread in a greased 9 x 11 baking pan.

* This will seem impossible -- you will think you don't have enough batter to cover the bottom of this size  pan.  Just do the best you can and don't obsess about spreading it evenly.

Arrange (about) 9 graham crackers over the batter.  (Sometimes I can fit 9, sometimes I can't.  Have no idea why).

To the remaining 2/3 of the batter, add the chocolate chips, stirring well.  Drop by spoonfuls over the graham crackers and spread to cover.  Again, this will seem impossible.  Just do it.

Bake at 375 for about 25 minutes.  When cool, cut into bars.

This looks really interesting and yummy! I'll have to try it! It's starting to get too warm to bake now. The humidity is up, the heat is up... summer is coming to the east coast!
