Christmas Snacks

Every Christmas I enjoy baking special treats and giving them as presents. I would bake with my mom when I was little and carried on that tradition with my own children. My daughter who would leave me to do the cooking became my shadow with baking and my son who enjoyed cooking with me would leave to go play, coming in only as things came out of the oven or to steal a taste from the bowl.

Today I was thinking of a recipe I make every year, it is from my mom. I am not sure where she got it and I have had some versions from other people but this recipe I make with such great memories of baking this simple recipe with her.

I am the queen of the wing it and not measure, this recipe is made yearly passed down so please remember this is a guide for the amounts you may need to adjust them to suit your needs.

Christmas Snacks:

2 cups of graham cracker crumbs

1/4 cup of sugar

1/3 cup of melted butter

1 bag of semi sweet chocolate chips ( 10oz bag)

1 14oz of sweetened condensed milk
