These were quick & delicious bars! Followed recipe as stated, except omitted the nuts. Microwaved the chocolate chips with some water for the drizzle topping. These were a hit with DH, every time I checked the plate one more was missing! Thanks for posting this recipe, Jolyn.

Rated 7 stars by 3 stepsons... they loved them! DH rated 4 stars because he likes chewy rather than cakey bars (he ate 3 though! :-)). Great, easy, fast dessert. I too, left out the glaze.

MMMMM! Yummy! Moist and full of chocolate!! Baked 5-10 minutes longer than recipe cause middle was still very wiggly. Boyfriend usually doesn't eat sweets, but took a good chunk of these barss!! Didn't add nuts and didn't drizzle chocolate on top. Added extra chocolate chips to make up for loss of nuts!lol
