Servings : Makes 20 squares
These beautiful and delicious squares are the perfect magical slices indeed!! They start off with a buttery crumb base, followed by layers of milk chocolate chips, chopped dates, dessicated coconut, almond flakes and to top it all off, a luxurious rich layer of condensed sweet milk to hold everything together!! The whole thing is then baked, cooled and then sliced up. Truly a magnificent combination, and they were a HIT on Eid day!!
Of course these may be too rich to have all the time, but they are perfect for when you have guests or for a party or to be served as treats on those extra special days/holidays. Guaranteed to be the talk of the party!! :))
