Chocolate Layer Bars!

Another one of my favorite holiday recipes are Chocolate Layer Bars. These delicious bars taste practically the same in their gluten free version as they do in their original form.

The ingredients you will need to prepare this recipe include:

*2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
*1 8oz. package of cream cheese
*2/3 cup (5.3 oz. can) evaporated milk
*1 cup chopped walnuts
*1/2 tsp almond extract
*3 cups gluten free flour (I used Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour)
*1/2 tsp salt
*1 1/2 cups sugar
*1 cup margarine
*1 tsp baking powder
*2 eggs

Now, for the directions:

1) Combine chocolate chips, cream cheese, and evaporated milk in a medium saucepan.

2) Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until mixture is smooth.

3) Remove from heat.

4) Stir in walnuts and 1/2 tsp almond extract. Blend well. Set aside.

5) Combine remaining ingredients in a large mixer bowl. Blend well until mixture resembles course crumbs.

6) Press half of mixture in greased 13 x 9 pan. Spread chocolate filling over flour mixture.

7) Now sprinkle the rest of the crumbs over the filling.

8) Bake at 375 degrees fahrenheit for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.

9) Cut into bars when cool and enjoy!
