Fudge Meltaways


Fudge Meltaways
*******

Makes 96 1-inch squares
Ama made these for buffet parties when we were growing up.  They are so decadent they make your teeth hurt.
Contains uncooked eggs, so you have been forewarned.

1st Layer:

1 C butter2 oz. unsweetened chocolate½ C sugar2 tsp vanilla
*
2 eggs, beaten4 C graham cracker crumbs (about 28 whole crackers)2 C coconut1 C chopped walnuts


2nd Layer
½ C butter
2 TBL milk or cream
4 C sifted powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla


3rd Layer
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate (equal to one 70% chocolate bar)

  1. Stir together all ingredients for 1st layer.  Press into 9x13 pan.  (don’t grease pan.)
  2. 2nd Layer:  beat butter until creamy, then add milk, sugar and vanilla.  Spread on top of first layer with spatula dipped in hot water.  Chill.
  3. Melt chocolate for 3rd layer in microwave and drizzle over 2nd layer.  Ama spreads chocolate on a little at a time, so it doesn’t harden too fast.  Spread to edges.  To make it even and glossy, put it under the broiler for just a few SECONDS (watch closely), and spread.
  4. Cut into 96 1-inch squares before chocolate topping is completely firm (cut just when high glossy sheen disappears).
