Delicious! Really, really rich! I was hoping they would firm up a bit more to put into goodie bags, but I ended up wrapping them individually in plastic wrap and stacking them in to the bag that way. They taste like a chocolate chip cookie on steroids, a little goes a long way. They scream to be served with a big glass of ice cold milk. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
These are excellent. I followed the recipe exactly and I would not change a thing. There is lots of chocolate filling and I thought the proportion of filling to mix was perfect. The texture of the square is firm as opposed to mushy fall apart. They cut nicely. What I really liked is it made a lot. I took some to work, and kept the rest. Everyone who tried them really liked them. I used chipits. I might try milk chocolate chips next time for a change. Update, I had to make these without nuts (allergy) and these are just like starbucks oat fudge squares, so another copycat recipe. That said I like them better with the nuts they add more texture and cuts the sweet chocolate layer.
Our family loves this square. I'm glad it makes a lot because it doesn't last too long in our house. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe.
