Finale – Swingin’ Summer Saturday’s and Sunday’s Extended Edition – Favorite Recipes

(Author’s Note: If you got here from the link at CBCMagazine.com,


You have landed in my special summer series “Swingin’ Summer Saturday’s and Sunday’s.”  A series of recipes and survival tips designed to get you through the hot summer.  This weekend the series is running from Friday – Monday and I’ve decided to share some of my favorite recipes that have appeared on this blog.

Hopefully you will find a recipe or two this weekend.  If not, check out the “Swingin’ Summer Saturday’s and Sunday’s category for more wonderful recipes.

Thanks for clicking over from CBC Magazine.  On Tuesday I will get back to the business of grief, extended unemployment and current adventures in my life.

Have a fun and safe weekend!)

This series might be over but summer is not.  There is still about 3 weeks left, so enjoy the last of your summer with this easy recipe from my friend AnnMarie.

Easy Heath Bar Cookies

Easy Heath Bar Cookies – BEFORE I Took A Bite!

Easy Heath Bar Cookies

(Thanks for long-time friend and former co-worker AnnMarie Kocias)


Saltine crackers                            12 oz. Semi-sweet or milk chocolate morsels

1 cup Butter                                    1 cup Chopped walnuts

1 cup Brown Sugar

¼ teaspoon Baking Soda


Line a rimmed cookie sheet (what my Grammy used to call a jelly roll pan) with foil and cover with cooking spray.

Lay out crackers on foil, sides touching.

Melt butter in saucepan, and then add brown sugar.

Let boil for 1 minute, stirring gently to mix.

Remove from heat.

Stir in baking soda and spread mixture with spatula over crackers.

Place in oven for 10 minutes at 375*.

Remove from oven, sprinkle with morsels, and spread melting chocolate across top of mixture.

Cover with chopped nuts making sure they are pressed into chocolate.

Place in refrigerator overnight or until cooled before cutting.

Makes 1 HUGE serving, or if you are a straight cutter, as many crackers that you can fit on sheet.


Michele’s Notes:

YUM! RICH!   Very gooey if you eat it warm.  Perfect snack for nieces, nephews, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.  Make sure you feed them this justbefore they go home.  You would not want them too sugared up while at your house ;)

It was extremely easy to make. The walnuts I broke apart by hand since the walnuts I bought were not chopped.
