These are amazing! I wouldn't change a thing about the recipe. Just perfect.

I've been making this recipe for quite a while now and always get a great response with it. I definitely would give it a five star rating. I also freeze them but only for about 2 weeks before serving.

Very easy to make. The smell is amazing and the taste is even better.

Delicious! I love white chocolate, though, so I used a full cup of white chocolate chips instead of half a cup of semi-sweets, which made them sinfully rich. While it might seem skimpy to cut an 8x8 pan of bars into 25 pieces, they really don't need to be any bigger than that.

When I took this to work, people almost drooled! The almond flavoring makes this bar special. I had the email the recipe to many people.
