It’s easy to cook a delicious breakfast for yourself or for the whole family.
• a double boiler
• a shallow baking dish
• 3/4 cup condensed milk
• 1 cup confectioners’ sugar, sifted
• 1 bar (41/2 oz.) semisweet chocolate
Rub a pat of butter or margarine over the bottom and around the sides of a shallow baking dish.
Fill the bottom part of a double boiler halfway with water. With help, place it over a high flame. When the water begins to boil, put the chocolate into the top part of the double boiler, and fit it into the bottom part. The heat from the boiling water will melt the chocolate.
After the chocolate melts, add the condensed milk and confectioners’ sugar and stir until smooth.
With a grown-up’s help, take the top part of the double boiler off the stove. Now add a pinch of salt and blend it into the chocolate mixture.
Pour the mixture into the baking dish. Let the mixture stand until it is cool. After an hour or so, it will be hard enough to cut into squares. If you wish, add one cup of chopped nuts before you pour it into the dish. This recipe makes about twenty pieces.
