Eagle Brand Squares, A Recipe That Hit so Close to Home
Eagle brand squares go back for generations in my family. My mom, my grandmother, and my great grandmothers on both sides of my mother’s side. They all used to make eagle brand squares all the time before I was alive.
I only got introduced to the recipe this summer, but the first time I made it, I was already hearing everyone's stories, like how “Once they were at a family dinner and they made eagle brand squares and my great Uncle John was trying to eat a bunch of them discreetly but every person there was counting. They even bet how many he was going to eat”.
I love this recipe because it tastes good, it is very easy to make, it's practical and it comes with some great memories. It's one of the things that made my summer worthwhile.
1½ cups graham cracker crumbs (or if you live in India digestive cookies) ½ cup butter, melted 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk 1½ cups semisweet chocolate chips 1 cup shredded coconut
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
Mix graham cracker crumbs and melted butter together in a bowl until evenly moistened; press into the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish.
Pour 1/2 the can sweetened condensed milk over the graham cracker crust. Sprinkle semisweet chocolate chips, and coconut, over the graham cracker crust; gently press chocolate, and coconuts into the crust. Drizzle remaining 1/2 can of condensed milk over the top.
Bake in the preheated oven until fragrant and coconut is golden, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into squares.
