Years ago, I drove 4-1/2 hours to a cake contest, holding my entry on my lap the whole way. But it paid off. One bite and you'll see why this velvety beauty won first prize. —Sandra Johnson, Tioga, Pennsylvania
"My husband and I make several batches of this easy, chocolaty nut squares for holiday gifts," notes Margery Bryan of Royal City, Washington. "Most people are surprised to learn the recipe includes soda crackers."
Married for 22 years, the couple recently retired and sold their ranch. Both love to cook.
"Who doesn't like chocolate chip cookies?" inquires field editor Diane Hixon, who credits cocoa in the batter for the double dose of chocolate in her treats. These disappear fast from the cookie jar in her Niceville, Florida home!
Cool, fruity and creamy, these gelatin treats are richer than plain gelatin and cut easily into whatever shape you'd like. They're a fun finger food that works for any holiday or theme.

The second question people ask when I serve them this pie is, "What's your recipe?" It comes right after their first question: "May I have another slice?" I like sewing and quilting, gardening…and canning the surplus! —Lauretha Rowe, Scranton, Kansas
