When the kids are bugging me to bake something, but I don't have the time, I turn to these no bake brownies recipe. This brownies recipe is quick, easy, and uses ingredients you probably have on hand in your pantry. It can be such a relief to make dessert without having to turn on your oven!

What You'll Need

  • 1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 oz. unsweetened chocolate
  • 2½ cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

How to Make It

  1. Spray a 9-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Heat the sweetened condensed milk and unsweetened chocolate in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, until chocolate is melted and mixture thickens, about 10 minutes.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat, and stir in the graham cracker crumbs and half of the chopped walnuts.
  4. Spread in the prepared pan. Top with the remaining walnuts.
  5. Chill until firm, 3-4 hours.

    The easiest way to get graham cracker crumbs is to put the crackers into a food processor and pulse them until they are a fine crumb. You could also crumble them with your hands, or put them in a ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling pin.
