Uncooked Squares aka Dark Chocolate Goodness :D

Uncooked Squares – aka Dark Chocolate goodness!

By Bree (actually, by my Great Grandmother, Helen Zion aka Grammy)

There are 3 layers.

Layer 1:

· ½ cup butter

· ¼ cup sugar

· 5 T. unsweetened coco powder

· 1 t. vanilla

· 1 egg

· 2 cups graham cracker crumbs (I use 2 packs, minus 2-3 graham crackers – 2 full packs makes the mixture too dry)

1. -Heat butter, sugar and coco powder in a pot, stirring till smooth

2. -Beat egg and vanilla together then beat into above mixture

3. -Add graham cracker crumbs (I find the finer the crumbs the better… if mixture won’t stick together, add a little more butter or less crumbs)

4. -Pack in the bottom of a 13x9 or smaller pan (it all depends on how thick you like your layers)

Layer 2:

· ¼ cup butter

· 2 T. instant vanilla pudding powder

· 3 T. milk

· 2 cups powdered sugar

-Mix and pour over first layer

Layer 3:

· 4 squares bitter chocolate (baking chocolate) (I replaced a square or two with dark chocolate because that’s what I had- it works but you need to be careful or it gets WAY too sweet!)

· 1 T. butter

1. -Melt over double boiler & Pour over layer 2.

2. -Chill the whole thing till firm –

NOTE: You want to make sure you score the top of the chocolate after it starts to firm but BEFORE it’s hard! :D

ENJOY and think of us J
