Recipe Comments & Reviews

Wonderful bar cookie; easy prep, and delicious. I made several batches at Christmas!
This recipe is very easy. I make it often as a quick treat and everyone loves it.
baked these as a snack for our family vacation, and they were a big hit. i threw in dark chocolate, milk chocolate, peanut butter and butterscotch chips, so they had something for everyone! they also traveled nicely, stayed moist and didnt make a big mess.
didn't have choco. chips. use plain m&ms. kids like them a lot
I did everything exept added just chocolate chips no peanut butter chips and added caramel sprikle mix from pampered chef. 2 tablesspoons.
