BLOG UNDER CONSTRUCTION

WELCOME to my blog… under construction. PLEASE NOTE if you are visiting for the first time or a long time fan, all my LINKS from Pinterest and just if you saved a favorite recipe, all links are broken. Most likely if you clicked on a saved link from somewhere it says “that page cannot be found”, but Do NOT worry, the recipe is STILL HERE, just lost in internet space. This happened when I had an error on my blog and someone tried to help me and basically destroyed my entire blog in the process.

THERE IS HOPE. Example: If you look at the URL of the link (recipe) you are trying to find, note the original post date, IE: 9/2012, just look in the original URL for month/year and then you can click on the ARCHIVE below under 2012 / September and then click the recipe name.

I am in the process of trying to fix my blog, but links cannot be restored, so basically my 4+ years of blogging is wasted and I am re-building from scratch. AHHHHH, okay! So…. HERE WE GO….

Chocolate Graham Cracker Snacks (Natchez Cookies)

This is a snack that even adults will love to indulge in. They are so light and fluffy and taste so good! I made this recipe many many years ago when I was a kid (I actually have the handwritten recipe below). I had actually forgotten about it until one day I was at Apples Bed & Breakfast a few years ago and she made what she calls Natchez Cookies. I remembered the taste instantly. (Apples Bed & Breakfast uses Saltine Crackers rather then Graham Crackers but either one is delicious)

When I was making my first scrapbook/cookbook my mom gave me this folder of  family recipes, and this is where I found this piece of paper with my writing on it. A hand written recipe by yours truly "Tina Yvonne Messick" (my signature is bigger then the entire recipe, too funny). PRICELESS!


Just updated this post! I made them today, a batch of each! They were both equally good, but I think I perfer the
Graham Crackers better! They are sinfully delicious (and for sure not on a diet menu)!
Chocolate Graham Cracker Snacks
recipe from unknown source, written by me as a 10 year old child (with a few changes)

Graham Crackers (break into 4th's)
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 to 1 cup walnuts (or pecans)
1 tsp vanilla (Apples Bed & Breakfast uses this so, I added it in)
1 bag of Chocolate Chips (I think the mini chocolate chips would be better)

Separate Graham Crackers onto a cookie sheet, fill up the entire sheet leaving no space in between. Melt 1/2 lb butter on stove top and then add in 1 cup brown sugar; spread mixture over crackers. Heat Oven to 400 and Bake for 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from oven and spread chocolate chips, walnuts on top and wait until chocolate melts. Cool & Serve.


Yep that's me at 10 years old!
