    This is one of those wonderful recipes where you get to make something out of almost nothing. There is nothing special in here, you don't even have to use the nuts although I did. You just use ordinary ingredients you probably already have and get something completley different that everyone will like. I didn't even use a can of sweetened condensed milk, I used a copycat recipe for it from this website, worked great. My olny comment is that it is a very gentle chocolate taste. I might try darker chocolate in the future to give it a bit more oomph. The filling is very much like fudge. The whole recipe cost only about 3$ to make I would say, a bargain for what you get out of it.

    I made these tonight and they're awful. Something had to have been left out in the ingrdient list. They don't taste like anything. I was looking forward to a treat and all I ended up with is lost money on the ingredients.

    I liked them, but I would add more sugar to the crust next time. It seemed a little floury to me and I think it is because 1/2 cup is not enough sugar

    Great squares. These are really quick to make. Once they cool they are not so crumbly and turn chewy. Thanks for the recipe

    Stormy5, we all agree; these are very goooood!!! My daughter was coming over with a friend, and I had to whip something up quickly. This recipe was just the ticket! The bars were very quick and easy to prepare. I think I overmixed the dough, as it wasn't a crumbly consistency, but I was still able to pat it out in the pan. I had to drop spoonfuls of it over the top of the chocolate layer, rather than sprinkle it, but the bars still looked pretty, and tasted great! (I omitted the nuts). The crust was similar to shortbread, and had a tender consistency. The chocolate layer was delicious, and paired so well with the crust! YUM! I'll be baking more of these tonight, to give away as a gift. Thanks! UPDATE: I made these again, and this time, I made sure I didn't overmix the dough. This time, it was crumbly, and gave the bars a completely different look. (I've posted photos from both times that I've made them, to show the difference.) These bars are now a regular in our house!
