Ratings & Reviews

    Meh. The taste is good, but the brownie layer comes out hard. I don't know if the two steps of baking are just too much or if the recipe proportions are off. It would be a much better recipe with a chewy layer on the bottom instead of a hard crunchy layer.
    I won first place at my county fair with this recipe!
    Excellent recipe! They taste great and are very pretty. To cut them neatly, line the pan with foil, spray foil with cooking spray, chill the bars after cooling, then lift from pan and cut into squares.
    I made these for my husband's potluck at work and it was the first dessert to finish!
