EATMORE CANDYBARS - I love Eatmore candy bars...can only get them in Canada...but perhaps we'll try this recipe...thanks to my cousin,  Jodi Redford for the recipe!

2 C. chocolate chips
1 C. corn syrup
1 1/4C. oatmeal
1/2 C. peanut butter or any nut butter
2 C. chopped nuts
Melt choc. chips, syrup, and peanut butter in a pan on stove on low heat. Add nuts and oatmeal. Put in ungreased 9x13 pan. Place in fridge to cool and set!

Melt together the honey, molasses and peanut butter and bring to a boil. Stir in marshmallows until smooth then add chocolate chips. Add the cereal and peanuts. Blend well and remove from heat. Pour into a lightly greased 9x13 inch pan and pat firmly with spatula. Let cool slightly and cut into bars before hardening.

GONE WITH THE WIND - This recipe was included in our family history book, "The Nels Ezra Christensen and Violet Christina Olsen Family History". This is a very light and fluffy dessert. Not sure if that's why it got its  name? or because its so delicious that its gone in an instant!

2 Cups Graham Cracker crumbs (30 ct)
2 TBLS butter
4 TBLS sugar

Mix together and place half the mixture on bottom of a 9"X13" cake pan. Reserve the remaining half for topping.

1 Cup milk
1/2 Cup sugar
3 eggs separated, using yolks, set aside whites for later in the recipe.
pinch of salt

Cook the above in a double boiler to a custard stage (coats a spoon). Add  one envelope of unflavored gelatin in a 1/2 cup of water and add to hot mixture. Stir in 1 tsp of vanilla extract. Cool until it starts to set. While you are waiting for the mixture to cool, beat the egg whites til stiff. When the mixture is cooled enough, fold in the stiffly beaten egg whites, and 1 Cup whipped cream. Pour into pan over the graham cracker crust. Top with remaining graham cracker mixture. Refrigerate til firm. Keep in refrigerator.

CANADIAN NUT SNACKS - Remember this being one of my father's favorites...he is a "nutty guy"...the flavors remind me of pecan pie...only it comes in a bar.

1/3 Cup sugar
1/3 Cup butter
2 egg yolks
1 tsp baking powder
Cream the above ingredients together. Add 1 Cup flour and 1 tsp vanilla. Press into an 8"X 8" square baking pan and cover with the following:

2 egg whites beaten stiff
1 Cup brown sugar
1 Cup chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts)

Bake at 325F for 30 minutes..let cool before cutting into bars...really yummy with vanilla ice cream.
