      OK recipe - bars were soft & cake-like with a nice flavor but the macadamia nuts were lost flavorwise. I suspect pecans (I am Southern afterall) or walnuts would be a better choice. The biggest problem with this recipe comes in with steps 8 -11. I used Nestles white chocolate chips. They softened to play dough consistency & even though I used a heavy duty freezer bag, and multiple 10 second zaps in microwave, they melted the plastic without melting the chips beyond thick play dough!! Yes, this was getting REALLY hot to knead! I dumped them into a bowl & the lump split open, revealing a coarse grainy consistency with brownish patches inside! I tried to ressurect them with a couple of tablespoons of butter (which sizzled when mixing with lumpo) but yielded a grainy mess, which idiotically, I tried to smear on the surface of the bars. Not pretty. I should have known beeter than to use microwave & plastic - these new-fangled techniques rarely turn out well for me. DH likes them - we will see how the pan gets consumed. If I make again I will keep only the pumpkin cake/bar base & not use macadamia nuts or white chocolate chips again.
