    YUM!! I got some almonds from a friend at work and they wanted me to make something with them...this was the first recipe i pulled up, so i went with it. Turned out amazing! only complaint, and i wouldnt even call it that, is that the crumb layer at the bottom comes apart very easily when cutting up and eating it...but who cares really...it's so tastey!

    I'm right in there with others who've made this recipe ~ These bars are OUTSTANDING, & I particularly appreciated how easy they are to make! A great chocolate & crumb combo, for sure! Two-thirds of them went to a meeting my other half attends, but the rest were right here in the kitchen for us to devour here at home! Thanks for sharing this great recipe!

    Oh, Azparzych, these are fantastic - and so simple, too! This is the kind of baking that I can make in the morning before work, and my collegues all think I'm some kind of baking super star! They look so pretty, too, with the crumb topping set off against the dark chocolate filling. Awesome!! Thanks so much for posting! Made for 1-2-3 Hits.

    I've been making these bars for over 15 years and they are so good. They are very rich and freeze well too. I lost my recipe and was glad to find it here.
