    Cooks4_6's Note:

    I made these for a company bake-off and won first prize. This is time consuming, but is one of the most fabulous chocolate desserts I have ever made! It can be made with or without the ganache topping, but I strongly suggest that you make it totally awesome by adding the ganche! Don't eat too many -- they are rich!

      5 stars for living up to the "decadent" and "rich" warning! Lol! These are so much work that I personally would probably not make them again -- I also made the ganache -- and without it, I'm not sure these would be 5 stars. For anyone into rich and decadent, has the time, and with the ganache presentation, this is your recipe and I encourage you to try it. I honestly need to get better at reading recipes before I make them because I thought these were cooked! They aren't! That's why Cooks4_6 makes the point about "pasteurized" eggs, which I noticed but completely 'spaced' on until I realized I would not be cooking these delightful bars! Fortunately, I purchase extremely high quality eggs anyway and have never experienced salmonella poisoning. Thanks Cooks4_6 for a holiday treat that my co-workers thoroughly enjoyed at our holiday party! Made for Bargain Basement tag game.
