A Chocolate Lover’s Dream

April 22, 2012

I love to read.  I’m always reading something.  Recently I found a book that also has recipes in it.  Unfortunately, I don’t like the book.  Fortunately, the recipes are good.  I found this recipe and have made it a few times.  Meeshie loves it.  I’ve brought it to work and it’s been a hit.  I knew it was a winner when one of the attorneys in the office gave me a hug.  I’ve never seen her hug someone before.  The things people do for chocolate.

These are a rich bar, so I prefer them with a small amount of nuts in between a few layers.  But, I’ll admit I don’t like chocolate as much as I love caramel.  This is definitely for the chocoholic in your life.  Make these and they will be putty in your hands.  I did mention I got a hug, right?

The book may be a bust, but the recipes have been great.  So if you see someone using their cell phone to take pictures of a recipe or two in the book section of your local Target, just keep walking.  I’ll act like I don’t see you either.

Chocolate Euphoria Bars

  • 1/2 C Butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 C Oreo Cookie Crumbs
  • 1 C Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 2 C Mini Marshmallows
  • 1-14 oz can Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 C White Chocolate Chips
  • 2 C Cocoa Puffs
  • 1 C Milk Chocolate Chips
  • 1/2 C Chopped Pecans (optional)

Combine the melted butter and Oreo crumbs.  Press them into a prepared 9×13 cake pan.  Layer the semi-sweet chocolate chips, marshmallows, sweetened condensed milk, white chocolate chips, cocoa puffs and milk chocolate chips.  If you are using the pecans, I added a small amount between the Oreo layer, after the sweetened condensed milk layer and on top.  Once assembled, press the layers into the pan with your hands.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.  Remove from the oven and allow them to cool completely before cutting.  Cut them into bars.

Makes about 35 bars.
