Holiday Cheer - Santa Squares

Today is the Feast of St. Nicholas. Several countries celebrates, some known as "Little Christmas" and exchange gifts with friends and families. Here's a site on St. Nicholas for more information. I also found this great site, The St. Nicholas Center. It has activies, history, recipes and more.

Santa Squares


9 graham cracker squares
1/2 cup butter or margarine (1 stick)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped nuts (almonds, walnuts, or pecans)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Arrange graham crackers in a single layer in an 8 or 9 inch square baking pan. Heat butter and brown sugar to boiling. Boil 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir until smooth. Pour liquid over crackers and spread evenly. Sprinkle with chopped nuts. Bake about 10 minutes, until bubbly. Remove from oven, cool slightly, and cut into 1 inch squares.
Makes about 3 dozen squares.

Alas! How dreary would be the world if there was no Santa Claus!... There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence.

Nope, sorry, I don't believe in Santa....unless of course, he's a Chippendale!!! (snort, snicker)

I've had these Santa Squares before but the person making them didn't have a name for them and they were also made with club crackers. Very good too but I imagine made with grahams, they would be great!

Of course I believe in Santa Claus. I enjoyed myself when I was a young child, when you didn't even think about " is there a Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, etc/", so it helps to keep the memories and it keeps you young at heart.

I have never had a Santa Square, but they do look delicious and Easy, will also copy this one down and try them. (Judy)
