I have this recipe in an old Land O'Lakes recipe book, except it is called "fudgy" instead of "chocolate." I started making it, and realized there is nothing in the recipe to make it fudgy, so I searched for a corrected recipe. I read the list of ingredients several times and don't see any chocolate in this one, either! What am I missing? I followed the recipe, but ended up with a mixture that just looks like graham crackers and tastes sweet and almond-flavored.

The chocolate in this recipe is from the chocolate graham crackers that are crushed and used in the recipe.

From the Test Kitchens... Thanks for commenting about the graham cracker ingredient. The number of graham crackers you need to use is 12. The recipe ingredient amount will be corrected very soon. Thanks again.
