These chewy, walnut rich squares are perfect for the holiday season. For a variation of the same recipe, top them with 1 cup each of chocolate chips and toffee bits. Either version makes a wonderful holiday dessert recipe.

1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 can sweetened condensed milk
3 cups California walnuts, chopped, divided
2 cups candied fruit, chopped

Pre-heat oven to 350 F.

In bowl, stir graham cracker crumbs, condensed milk and half of the walnuts. Pat in the bottom of a greased 8-inch square baking dish. Top with remaining walnuts and candied fruit.

Bake until walnuts are golden and base is set, about 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool completely and cut into squares
