      These turned out great! Make sure u watch them tho because they only took 30 mins in my oven. I didnt have any vanilla flavoring so i omitted it and they were perfect without it. Not sure what the vanilla does for it but dont think they need it

      I made these for my boyfriend and he could not stop raving. This is a mostly southern traditional dessert, and they are unheard of up here. He brought them into his office for his staff :-)

      Disappointing. After reading all of the previous positive reviews, I had high hopes for these bars. I followed the recipe exactly...the chocolate layer was dry and the cream cheese layer was too souffle-like for my liking. :(
