Quick Sugar Fix

You know those times when you need to whip up a treat real fast?

Like when you are having people over for dinner and think, "I'll make some amazing cake!" And then you wait until you have around half an hour to make something and that's when you realize, "Oh, all my amazing cake recipes take a couple hours."

Or like when you get home from work and think, "I need a homemade treat, stat."

Oh, that's just me who has those times? Oh, well that's not awkward at all.

In case you ever do come upon "one of those times", I have an easy recipe for you. I tried it over the weekend when we had friends over for shish kabobs and beach volleyball (we ate shish kabobs and played beach volleyball in case you grow confused easily). It turned out great, and all with just a few simple ingredients!!

Graham Cracker Chocolate Chip Pie

2 cups of graham cracker crumbs (roughly 30 squares)
1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon of baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 can (14 oz) of sweetened condensed milk

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Spread into a pie pan (or brownie pan if you want brownie form). Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes.

I found this treat even more delicious the day after making. But nuke it in the microwave later on for best results. Also, you might want a glass of milk, especially if you like adding extra chocolate chips to everything like I do!


  1. Ummmm...fantastic nails! P.S. the treat looks tasty too

  2. Ha ha, why thank you. This coming from the lady who ALWAYS has cute nails.

  3. Thanks for posting an easy recipe. I have to take something to a scout activity tonight and this can be just the thing - even if it will only feed 4 boys :-) I should have doubled the recipe but didn't want to take the time.
