I was hooked after having one bite of this treat

Squirrels, with their playful antics and fluffy tails, hold a special place in our hearts. What better way to honor these delightful creatures than with Chewy Nutty Squirrel Bars? These treats are brimming with crunchy nuts and rich condensed milk, making them the perfect snack or quick breakfast option. Not only are they scrumptious, but they’re also simple to whip up and can be kept in the fridge for a week, ensuring you have a tasty treat on hand whenever you desire.

The inspiration for these bars came during a visit to my grandparents in the countryside, where a family of squirrels had made their home in the backyard. Captivated by their presence, I sought to create something special for them. My grandmother suggested these bars, and it was a joy to see the squirrels enjoy the fruits of our labor.
