Sunday is my most favorite day of the week. A person is suppose to rest on Sunday. Re-energize for next week to come....
But my Sunday consisted of this:
Dark Chocolate Chips
Sweetened Condensed Milk
How can those few ingredients create something delicious?
I look at this recipe as one of Jesus's Parables.
What is a Parable?
Butter and graham crackers (I imagine dry)
A Parable is a fictitious tale, although usually realistic.
A Parable was created to stimulate the mind.
Butter and graham crackers.
My mind stimulation: the crust of a cheesecake
Dark chocolate chips.
My mind stimulation: Bitter sweet
My mind stimulation: Crispy and sweet
During church service on Sunday (I am the one with a notebook and pen taking notes), the Pastor was asking individuals if they knew all the Parables in the Bible.
The answer from everyone he asked was, "NO".
So I am jotting down in my little notebook, "What is a Parable?"
When I got home from church, where do you think I headed? Yup, right to the best resource book I own. My computer.
And I can see why everyone was answering "NO". There are tons of Parables in the Bible.
I have heard that when a person studies and reads they add wrinkles to their brain. The more wrinkles a person has, the smarter they are. I am adding wrinkles to my brain, but I must have started with zero, because I don't think I am any smarter yet.
But back to my 'Lil Darlin Parable....
These ingredients lead to a fictitious brain stimulator, because there is no way these few ingredients will create something tasty.
Believe me, the first bight you take will be a brain stimulator. And it is good to stimulate the brain. It is healthy, we need it, and we have to apply wrinkles to the brain.
1/2 c. (1 stick) butter
1 1/4 c. finely crushed graham crackers (about 7)
1 c. chopped walnuts
1 c. Special dark chocolate chips
1 c. shredded coconut
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place the butter in an 8x8 square baking dish and set it in the oven to let butter melt (about 5 minutes)
Carefully take the hot dish out of the oven and sprinkle the graham cracker crumbs evenly over the melted butter. Then layer, in order, the nuts, choco chips, and coconut. Pour the milk slowly, and evenly over the top.
Bake for 30 minutes, cool, and then cut into bars.
Good Luck~Happy Eating~Enjoy
Example of a Parable: "Jesus told them still another story. "The kingdom of heaven is like yeast,", he said. "A woman mixed it into a large amount of flour. The yeast worked its way all through the dough." Matthew 13:33
