    AWSOME
    I took this to a LARP event and I won a dessert contest with this recipe. It is amazingly good!
    WE love this recipe, very simple and easy to make. Best part in hubby likes this very much so will be making a 2nd batch for Christmas. I also chopped the bark up into small pieces as I was in the middle of making cookies and had no more choc. chips left. This worked wonderful in the cookies also.
    My husband and I made Christmas candy all day, we tried this for the first time. It was the favorite from both of our workplaces. I doubled it and used a cookie sheet.
    I loved this recipe. It was easy and tasted great. Everyone that ate it asked me for the recipe.
    I love this-it's simple to make and tastes great. It also gives more color & variety to your cookie tray.
