Clare's Black & White Squares
A delicious holiday treat

Grease 8 x 8 pan
Preheat oven to 325 F

1/3 C butter
1 C white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

3/4 C flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Divide mixture, adding 2 tbs cocoa to one half and 1/2 C cocoanut (I use medium shred) to the other.

Spread the chocolate base over the pan and top with the coconut. Bake for 30 to 40 (you know your own oven) minutes. Cool. Frost with your favourite chococlate frosting. Yummy!

AKA "Burke's Law Treats" because they're black & white and full of flakes.

Gene Barry
1919 - 2009

The recently departed Gene Barry, Tony nominated (La Cage Aux Folles) actor and singer, sci-fi hero (The War of the Worlds) and debonair television crimefighter (Bat Masterson, Burke's Law, The Name of the Game) also qualifies under today's title of "Yummy".


  1. I just received a Christmas card from a woman who is you! What a sweet surprise. My heart is warm and happy now. Thank you thank you thank you. Happiness and joy to you and yours this holiday season.

  2. Thank you for your good wishes. I'll spread them around. You bring much to my life, my friend.
