California Walnut Jewel Squares
These chewy, walnut-rich squares are perfect to serve for the holidays or anytime of the year.
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
3 cups California walnuts, chopped - divided use
2 cups candied fruit, chopped
- In a bowl, stir graham cracker crumbs, condensed milk and half of the walnuts. Pat in the bottom of a greased 8-inch square baking dish. Top with remaining walnuts and candied fruit.
- Bake in a 350°F (175°C) oven until walnuts are golden and base is set, about 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool completely and cut into squares.
Makes 16 squares.
Tip: For a flavor variation, top with 1 cup each of chocolate chips and toffee bits.
