These Maple Nut Bars are super rich, so take that into consideration when you cut them. I cut mine very, very small. The original recipe is from Eagle Brand, but I have adapted it slightly.
Also, this recipe desperately needs a new photo! I’ll try to post one soon.
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 (14 oz.) can Eagle Brand® Sweetened Condensed Milk
- 1 large egg
- 1 1/2 teaspoon maple flavoring
- 1 cup (6 oz. pkg.) semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 cups chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts)
- 6 ounces butter, cold
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 13x9 inch metal pan with foil and spray foil with cooking spray.
- Combine the flour, sugar and salt in large bowl or in the bowl of a food processor.. Cut in butter with pastry blender or pulse the processor until mixture forms fine crumbs.
- Stir in 1 beaten egg (or process). Press firmly onto bottom of prepared pan and bake for 25 minutes.
- Meanwhile, In a large mixing bowl, beat together the condensed milk, remaining egg and maple flavoring; stir in nuts.
- Sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over prepared crust, then pour the condensed milk/nut mixture over the chips.
- Return to oven and bake for an additional 25 minutes or until golden. C
- Let cool completely, then lift from the pan and cut into bars. For easier slicing, I recommend chilling the bars before cutting.
