      These are as easy to make as they are good! The crust is yummy and they go together very quickly. I saved a step, and just sprinkled the chocolate chips over the bars as they came out of the oven, letting them melt, and spreading them out before cooling. Thanks, *Pixie, for a great addition to my cookie repertoire. Made for Spring PAC '09.
