These are so good and easy to make. They go fast for school bake sales or a family gathering.

These were quite yummy! I made them just as the recipe stated, but I think the chocolate layer could have been a tad bit sweeter. Maybe it was my chocolate. I'll make these again though! Thanks for a good recipe!

WOW!!! I am so glad that I tried this recipe! These bars are heavenly! I substitued butter for the shortening and used 2 small pkgs of M&M's. I also left out the nuts (a standard thing I do with most baking because of husband's and kid's preference). Without question I'll be making these again.
