This is my new holiday favorite! It was easy to make the first time, although the layers would have been more even had I been more careful spreading each layer. The taste was just right; rich chocolatey flavor but not too sweet with a touch of amaretto. Presentation was nice (I found holiday mini-muffin papers) and bite-sized pieces were appreciated when part of a big buffet.
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.
Whether you celebrate with just family or a big crowd, New Year’s Eve is the perfect time to make a fun array of small bites, dips and spreads.
