    Add
    2 eggs
    ½ cup mincemeat
    1 ½ squares unsweetened chocolate (melted and cooled)
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    ½ cup chopped nuts (walnuts work well) – optional but much better with them
    ¾ cup all-purpose flour

    Spread in greased 8x8 pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes.

    Cut into squares and coat with confectioner’s sugar to serve.

    2 medium-to-large red onions, chopped
