(invented before a journey to the Bayanhongor Province of Mongolia)
¾ cup melted butter (not margarine)
1 cup white sugar
1 ½ cups flour
2. Add and mix:
One egg yoke
1 tsp. molasses*
1 ½ tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 tsp. pure almond extract
3. Spread mixture evenly over two 9” x 12” flat baking pans (preferably glass or ceramic). Bake at 350 degrees for about 15-20 minutes until the center begins to harden and the edges begin to slightly brown.
4. Take out of oven and evenly spread across the crusts 4-5 finely chopped Snickers bars® (or any alternative such as chocolate chips). Pour one-half 10 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk over top of each crust and return to oven for 15-20 minutes. Remove after condensed milk has turned brown. (Do not overcook.)
5. Allow to cool slightly. Before completely cooled, cut into fudge-sized squares while still soft.
*preferred but optional. Consider brown sugar as a substitute.
