These are DELICIOUS! Have made them several times now and I have people requesting me to bring them to every gathering. Have both melted the chocolate and spread it, and also when I was short on time just mixed the chocolate chips in to the dough. Fantastic!

How dare you post a recipe for something that made me gain 20 pounds just looking at it! These bars are amazing! These are the definition of decadent and even with the three steps they are very simple to make. They are also very versatile. I added mini chips to the cookie dough and I think next time I'll try toffee chips..peanut butter or butterscotch chips sound good too. One note: don't try these for the first time before they are very cold because we were disappointed until we tasted them the next day and got the full effect. Cut them in small pieces and store them in the freezer (hide them way in the back) and you might not eat them all the first day. Thanks for the great treat!
