Recipe Comments & Reviews

Oh my goodness this is recipe is SO yummy! For every new person I make it for, they BEG me for the recipe!
one of my favorite dessert bars! i have made it for the last few years during holidays after reading the recipe in a land o lakes flier. Make sure it is completely cool before you cut it or it gets very messy and ruins the presentation. I make the top layer slightly thinner than the bottom so that it is easier to cut. Really, cutting the bars is the only bad part about this recipe because the filling is much softer than the chocolate.
