      I'm wondering if the reason other chefs haven't tried this recipe is because of the title. Well I'm here to tell you that these are addictively good! Almost a cross between a bar cookie and candy. Very rich and delicious! I knew it was going to be good when I couldn't stop eating the mix for the base and top. It was so good unbaked...but got even better after baking. What could be bad tasting with chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and butter! Definitely not for those watching their weight...but the rest of us can enjoy indeed. Made for PAC Spring 2013.
