Recipe by Nova Scotia Cook

My sister sent me this recipe raving about how good these squares were. They taste exactly like a chocolate bar we used to buy as kids called a 5 Star Bar. Hope you like them as much as we do.

Love these and make them every Christmas I don't use any cooking oil with my aero bars I use 5 bars instead! I just lay them on top of the base layer while it's hot and spread when melted!!!
