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!!!

These were good but I think they should have been baked in a 13X9 pan as they were very, very thick. I also only used half the icing as it was thick enough.

made these with melted chocolate chips on top as we do not have AERO bars here. Satisfied a sweet tooth like you wouldn't believe. I agree these would be good with a little granola mixed in.
