No-bake brownies are more more fudge-like than cake-like. That's because the stove-top treats use less flour than their oven-cooked counterparts -- and no eggs. Nuts and crushed crackers or cookies add bulk to the brownie mixture, rescuing the treats from tipping too far into candyland.

Step 1

Coat the brownie pan lightly with vegetable spray.

Step 2

Boil 4 parts sugar, 2 parts evaporated milk and 1 part butter or oil over medium heat, while stirring briskly. Lower to a simmer and cook an additional 10 minutes.

Step 3

Combine equal parts chocolate chips, chopped nuts, and crushed cracker or wafer crumbs, and a slightly smaller amount of flour. For example, combine 1 cup each of the first three ingredients and 3/4 cups flour when using 3 to 4 cups of the evaporated milk-sugar-and-butter mixture.

Step 4

Add the dry ingredients to the simmering evaporated milk mixture and stir until evenly heated and combined.

Step 5

Pour the batter into the brownie pan and cool at room temperature or in the refrigerator.

Step 6

Cut the brownies into squares when the mixture is solid and serve.
