YUM! We loved this! Made for my daughter's friend who is the "Rhubarb Man." He and my DH both gobbled up generous servings, then went in for seconds. This is pretty sweet (which we love) - if you like more tart rhubarb I would recommend cutting down the sugar a bit. My sauce did not thicken very much on the stove top, but it did in the oven and it worked out fine. Easy recipe, really good. Thanks!

Delicious!! I took this to a family bbq & served with ice-cream - it was LOVED by everyone - even the "rhubarb haters"!! I followed the recipe except that I left out the food colouring. This dessert almost tastes like an oatmeal cookie with a fruity topping. My only suggestion is to GREASE THE PAN REALLY WELL. I greased the pan but still had a terrible time getting the squares out to serve.

Delicious and turned out well. I skipped the food coloring, and thought the color was fine. I cooked the sauce only until the sugar had completely dissolved, and that worked out fine, too. Next time, I would cut back a bit on sugar in the rhubarb mixture, as I like the tartness of rhubarb. I also made the mistake of covering when steaming hot, so texture lost its crunchiness. Was still great.

This is the best crunch I've tasted and my son is asking, no, demanding another dish to be made. It was scrumptious! I never made any changes....... Thanks for sharing.

I also used some strawberries but otherwise followed it exactly. My kids were less than impressed, having never had rhubarb before, but it brought back great memories and tastes of childhood. I would like to know the best way to halve or third the recipe, though-I really can't eat the whole thing before it gets bad!

This is a great dessert that is easy and quick to make. I also use the same method of crunch but with apple filling which I just add a little sugar to sweeten the apples. Guests always rave about this dessert. The bottom and top "crumble/crunch" is delicious.

My husband decided to give this one a try and followed the recipe except used orange juice instead of water and didn't use the red colouring. It was a winner, will be getting him!! to make this one again. Thanks

Delicious and really easy to make. Never though of putting colouring in such a recipe before but it really looked, and tasted, great.

This recipe is wonderful! It was pretty easy to make. I made it exactly as directed. I worried about the cornstarch mix not getting thick enough, but it worked out great. I brought it to work and it was a big hit! Thank you!
