      These were tasty. The middle got a little hard - a bit difficult to cut (and I baked for 18 minutes). It also seemed like the crust was really thick and didn't brown up enough, but I couldn't see if it was browning because the brown sugar layer covered it completely. They did taste great and were easy.

      Soooo Good!I had to halve the recipe because I didn't have enough ingredients in the house-they still turned out great.I threw a couple of handfuls of butterscotch chips along with the milk chocolate on top--super decadent.Served these straight out of the fridge because we liked the texture of the cold chocolate and crunchy pecans with the buttery crust--can't wait to make a second(and full) batch of these!Thanks for the recipe!!

      When my friends tasted these bars, I watched them stagger a bit and then close their eyes in blissful enjoyment. "There ought to be a law against these things" one fella moaned. The recipe is surprisingly easy and quick to make...always a plus...and they make a lot, if you cut the pieces into 1-11/2 inch pieces. I think my oven must have been hotter than I realized since the crust browned faster than the recipe stated and got firmer than I expected, making it difficult to cut the cooled bars. But, despite my troubles, the taste was delicious, a cross between a cookie and a piece of chocolate toffee. I'll definitely be making these treats again!
