Photo source: Grandmother's Kitchen

An easy and delicious dessert square recipe.

Ingredients

Base
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup margarine, or butter, at room temperature

Filling
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 Tablespoons corn syrup
1/2 cup condensed milk

Topping
1 cup semi-sweet milk chocolate chips
1 teaspoon margarine or butter

Directions

Preheat oven to 350F.

Grease and 8x8 inch baking pan.

Base:

Place the flour, sugar and margarine into a mixing bowl and combine using a wooden spoon.

Transfer to the prepared baking pan.

Place into preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes or until golden.

Remove and place onto a cooling rack.

Let cool before putting the filling.

Filling:

Place the margarine, sugar, syrup and sweetened condensed milk into a sauce pan and heat over medium heat.

Bring to a boil, and let it boil for five minutes, stirring constantly, as it can burn easily.

Remove from heat.

Beat with a wooden spoon until it starts to thicken, then pour over the cooled base.

Place into the refrigerator to cool before putting the chocolate topping layer.

Topping:

Melt chocolate chips with margarine in a small saucepan over very low heat.

Once smooth and runny, pour over the cooled squares. Spread out with a spatula.

Place into the refrigerator to chill then cut into small squares.
