Jeannie Shingles

 

Our dear friend, Camille, made this sweet treat for a cookie exchange a few years ago and took home the grand prize award of “best cookie”. I have made them several times since then and have shared the recipe with my friends and family – who have loved it as well! You may wonder where the name came from? Well that’s what Camille called them and the name has stuck since. Great recipe for tailgates, parties, football watching, etc etc

Ingredients

001

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 sticks salted butter (I only had unsalted around this time)
  • Honey graham crackers
  • 12 oz chocolate chips

Directions:

1) Preheat oven at 375 degrees.

2) Line a cookie sheet (one with edges/sides) with aluminum foil. Spray with non stick spray. Then make a layer of graham crackers. You may have to break some of the squares into smaller pieces to make it fit in the pan.

4) Pour butter and sugar mixture on top of graham crackers. Spread well so that all crackers are covered in mixture.

5) Place pan in oven for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately pour chocolate chips over graham crackers. Once the chocolate chips begin to melt, spread evenly over graham crackers.

    Yay! You posted the beloved Jeannie Shingles! So the reason they are named this is that my mom has these recipe cards. She got them a long time ago. They are pre-printed from a cookbook of some sort and that was the title they named these awesome treats. Since then, whenever I make them for occasions, people tell me what their families called them. Usually it’s something like “mock toffee” or has the word “toffee” in it because they do end up having a somewhat caramely/toffee taste. They’re delicious and so easy!

    Also, you can make them with any flavor of morsels: peanut butter, mint chocolate, chocolate with heath bar bits etc. All are delicious 🙂
