      These were good - a bit more like cake squares, than bars, but they were definately enjoyed! Like Syd, I was generous with the chocolate, nuts, and raisins. I didn't have a 15x10 pan, so following the advice of a pan converter I googled, I used a 9x13 pan. I think they would be better done in the 15x10 pan as suggested in the recipe. I did have to cook them for twice as long as suggested, which may have been due to the pan size. The glaze is a really nice touch! Thanks, Wicky! Made for PRMR.

      I did up a large batch of applesauce (using Fuji apples) the other day so used some of that in this recipe! And I was generous with the chocolate, the nuts, AND the raisins! Was also thoughtful enough (to myself & my other half, anyway) to share about 2/3 of the bars with my co-workers in the art department where I work part-time! All agree that these are GREAT TASTING TREATS (I ignored those who thought there were too many raisins used)! From now on, these bars will show up often on my finger food counter in the future! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed for one of my co-hosts in the current Pick A Chef]
