Chocolate Layer Bars


12-ounce pkg. semisweet chocolate chips 1 8-ounce pkg. cream cheese ½ Cup plus 2 T evaporated milk (5-ounce can) 1 cup walnuts or almonds, chopped 1/2 teaspoon almond extract 3 cups all-purpose flour 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 cup butter, softened 2 eggs


  1. Combine chocolate chips, cream cheese and evaporated milk in medium saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until chips are melted, and mixture is smooth.

  2. Remove from heat; stir in nuts and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract. Blend well; set aside.

  3. Combine remaining ingredients in large mixer bowl. Blend well with mixer until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  4. Press half the mixture into a parchment paper lined 13 x 9-inch pan. Spread with the chocolate mixture.

  5. Sprinkle rest of the crumbs over filling. (If the mixture softens and forms a dough – (Mine Did), pinch off pieces and place on top or roll out dough and place over the top).

  6. Bake at 375 degrees F for 35 to 40 minutes. Cool; cut into bars.

(makes about 3 dozen bars)
