Who wants to be a Millionaire?

I do, I do.... wouldn't that be great ~~ no worries about money, but then again we will just have worries about other things wouldn't we
... So instead of being a millionare, why not try these scrumptious  Millionaire Squares.  This is one recipe that I have used many times.... it is easy and it tastes great... just like you spent a millionaire dollars preparing it.
                                                                      Millionaire Squares
Millionaire Squares
This recipe is from Company's Coming by Jean Pare

Bottom Layer
Butter or hard margarine                        1/2 cup
Finely crushed oatmeal cookies               2 cups
Semissweet chocolate baking squares,   3 X 1oz
      cut up (or 1/2 cup chips)
Butter or hard margarine                        1/2 cup
Large egg                                                1
Icing sugar (confectioner's)                     2 cups
chopped walnuts                                     1/2 cup  -- I don't use

Reserved crumbs for topping

Bottom Layer:   Melt butter in saucepan on med-low.  Stir in crushed cookies. Measure 1/4 cup crumbs and set aside for topping.  Press remaining crumbs in ungreased 8 X 8  pan.  Bake in 350 degree oven for 5 minutes.   This baking step can be omitted if you make crust ahead and allow it to stand a few hours to harden and dry.  When crust is baked fist the filling is much easier to spread without the crumbs lifting.
Dad's Oatmeal cookies make these squares taste the best

my cooling place...

Filling:  Melt chocolate and butter over low heat, stirring often, until smooth.  Remove from heat.  Add egg and beat.  Add icing sugar beating until smooth.  If too soft to hold shape add 1/4 cup more icing sugar ( usually the 2 cups is enough).  This will set up a bit when chilled but not much more than when you spread it in the pan  

stir chocolate mixture until smooth

Filling layer over bottom layer

Top Layer: 
sprinkle the reserve crumbs over the chocolate layer..
After filling is smoothed over crust, sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Refrigerate. Cut into 36 small squares or 25 large squares..... ( I cut mine bigger about 20 squares.)

         The final product    Rich... just like a millionaire

  1. These look so good! And the Dad's cookies have taken me down memory lane to the times when my aunt would bring a bag every time she'd visit. (She worked for Dad's)

    1. I love Dad's cookies and every time I go home to Canada I have to buy a bag so that I can make these... It is kind of good that I think Dad's cookies are the only cookies that make these good or I probably would be making them all the time.

  2. They look like a million bucks! I'd never be able to stop at just one :)
