Often during my shows I see folks have an Ah Ha! moment where some food or recipe I mention triggers a memory from their life. I thought I had combed all my memories, but this morning I had my own moment. I got up early to blog and exercise and found this recipe in one of my collections. My Mom made something for years that my brother called Congo Bars. She used chocolate chips, and they were a favorite dessert. Anyone know where the name came from? This is someone else's version, but still looks great. I did my best deciphering the recipe...
2 1/4 brown sugar
1 c. walnuts chopped
1 pkg. semi sweet nestle morsels (6 oz.)
Mix and sift dry ing. Melt short and add brown sugar. Stir until mixed. Allow cool slightly. Add eggs singly and beat after each. Add dry ing. then nuts. Pour in greased pan 10 1/2 by 15 by 3/4. (I think that's a jelly roll pan.)
