      OH MY GOODNESS!!!Very rich, can't eat just one. The guys I served these to all told me they loved me and could they have another. My only questions is what to do with the rest of the condensed milk. Very very easy and well worth the effort.

      Well, Cher, you should just be ashamed of yourself! ;) These incredibly rich little bars just really pack a whollop! Decadently rich and delicious! A special sweet-treat for a summer's evening. I used semi-sweet chocolate bits in place of the white chocolate, and made no other changes. I have never made a dessert in the microwave before and I found this recipe to be more simple than pie ;) Thanks for sharing yet another fantastic recipe!!
