Chocolate Trivia & The Perfect Train Snack: Choo Choos

Mustn't forget about chocolate. Here's a bit of chocolate trivia - M&M's stands for the last names of Forrest Mars, Sr., the candy maker and his associate, Bruce Murrie. M&M is way easier than saying "Forrest & Bruce".

Back to this week's theme: Trains. Sometimes it's nice to have some munchies when you're on a train ride. Here's a recipe for an easy snack that travels well and is chewy. Hence, the name.


grease an 8" square pan
preheat oven to 350º
bake 30 min.
makes 24 bars

blend together
3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar

stir in
1 cup chopped dates
3/4 cup chopped walnuts

2 eggs - beat until foamy
blend with dry ingredients
turn into prepared pan
bake - cool - cut into bars

Have a great weekend. How can you miss - you're in Winnipeg!
