I have had this recipe for more than 30 years and it is a staple at our house. I use whole graham crackers rather than crumbs...melt the margarine in the pan then line with graham crackers. It's very easy and comes out the same as if you used crumbs. This is very rich so cut small!

Very good! I deleted the nuts, as I didn't have any. I added dried cherries from Trader Joe's and burned the crust a tad, but still it worked! Just what I needed on this snowy Minnesota night! Thanks so much!

This is our family's favorite!!!! I too make a little thicker crust so they are easier to carry and eat. Super YUMMY

This is the same recipe that I have used for nearly 40 years except that I like a little more stable crust on the bottom so I use an additional 1/2 cup of crumbs. Nothing better than these slightly chilled with a glass of milk...my oldest daughters favorite holiday treat!

These were easy and delicious and very forgiving for those of us that aren't into exact measurements. I switched the nuts to almonds but other than that followed the recipe exactly. They aren't quite ready to cut and eat yet so I don't know how that one corner disappeared. Hmmm? Thank you for a great rainy evening treat.

I have been making these for 35 years. These are my family's favorite bars ever. I have friends who only want me to make these for them for Christmas.

Yummy and simple. There were so many different recipes, I'm glad I tried this one, it's exactly what I remember these bars to be like.
