CHILL MIX TOGETHER (the way you would make a standard icing) 1/2 c. margarine 1.5 tsp vanilla 3+ c. icing sugar 1 egg canned milk (evap) add to desired consistency SPREAD ONTO BOTTOM LAYER, LICK THE BEATERS! MELT 3 chocolate squares 2 T margarine SPREAD OVER ICING LAYER, LICK THE SPATULA REFRIDGERATE UNTIL TOP LAYER HARDENS. GRAB A KNIFE AND EAT ALL THE EDGES WHERE THE SIDES OF THE PAN ROUND UP (these pieces are wastage as the squares would have slanted sides and that would not do!).
