12 Days of Christmas Crafts - Bonus Day! - The Grant Life

In addition to the original 12 Days of Christmas Crafts I chose to include a few bonus days! There were so many great ideas I couldn't just pick 12! So here today we have Kelley from The Grant Life who is going to share with us a sweet recipe!

Hi Kurtz Corner readers! My name is Kelley and I blog over at The Grant Life. Over at my place you will find all kinds of crafty, foodie, thrifty goodness! Stop on by if you get a chance.  ;) 

Can you believe its almost Christmas? I know..I cant either. My house isn't even completely decorated yet! But we will get that taken care of soon.  

Our favorite part of Christmas is the time spent with friends and family. It warms my heart (Christmas-y cliche phrase.. I know. But its true!) to be able to sit and relax with my loved ones. Oh and the food.  I love Christmas goodies! Today I'm going to share with y'all my all time favorite Christmas treat...magic cookie bars! 

These bars are simple to make and are great to take to a party or get together. I made mine Sunday morning for our church fellowship gathering that afternoon. I made them while I was making pancakes for the family.  And doing laundry. And we made it to church on time. That's how easy they are to make.  

2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup butter
1 can sweetened condensed milk
chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 350.
Melt your butter and add your graham cracker crumbs.  Mix until all the butter is absorbed. 
Firmly press the crumbs into the bottom of a 9x12 baking dish. 
Cove the crust with the sweetened condensed milk.  
 Cover the sweetened condensed milk with your chocolate chips and walnuts.  Top that with your coconut.  You can add more or less of each according to your preference.  
 Bake for 30 minutes (at 350) until the coconut is golden brown.   
 Once cooled, cut into bars and serve. 
This is how your bars should look when done.  (I didnt cut mine before we headed out because they werent completely cooled.)  Super easy recipe that is sure to please everyone.

    I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose
