Recipe Comments & Reviews

This recipe is super easy and the caramel adds such a good taste to the chocolate. I have made this at least 4 times, and each time, the pan of bars is almost gone from one dinner. It is great for potluck dinners and I have gotton many compliments for it. You can make it the night before/and you can put it in the fridge. This recipe is great!!!
