Made as a *pressie* for the Dec Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap, these lovely squares of tasty goodness are so easy to make & far too easy to eat. They have joined my holiday food gift baskets this yr for DHs family, so I made 2 batches. I suggest the lower end of the cooking time given, a well-greased baking pan & a sharp knife to cut the squares once the choc hardens. I ate 2 of them w/my coffee after dinner, watched DH devour 5 while I sat there & then quickly froze the rest so they would not disappear entirely. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)
