A Baker I am Not: Day Three

And now, in my series of complaining about how I don't know how to bake, I bring you a recipe that I didn't mess up!  In truth, this recipe is IMPOSSIBLE to mess up, and amazing when all is said and done.

Melt 12 oz. of chocolate chips with 1 can of sweetened condensed milk.  And, in a separate bowl, combine 1/2 cup of finely ground walnuts with 1/3 box (1 package) of finely ground graham crackers.

Then, combine the melted chocolate with the graham cracker mix until it forms a big sticky mess.  (The mixture can be really hard to stir, so bring in the big guns, if necessary).

Once you have everything all mixed together, use your hands to roll out ping pong ball-sized chocolate balls, and drop them onto a plate of powdered sugar.

Roll them in powdered sugar until they're well-coated, then cool (either in the refrigerator or freezer).  You can eat them at room temperature, but I prefer to enjoy these guys with a little chill to them.

Quick, easy, and darn tasty.  These freeze really well, so make yourself a million, stick 'em in the freezer, and you can enjoy them for years to come!  OR!  You can eat them in one day, as I do.

I love these because the steel-toe look reminds me of difficult manual labor.

And manual labor, peeps, is not something I do.  Which is why these shoes are PERFECT for me!
