Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Line 13x9-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, extending foil over edges. Set aside.

Good recipe, but not great. Honestly, the photo looks better than they taste. Nothing spectacular like I was hoping for. The chocolate and sea salt measurements are way off. Try only 1 oz. chocolate and less shortening. I only used about 1-1/2 teaspoons sea salt and my bars are salt-covered just as much as the those in the photo.
