"A lot of ingredients and time consuming a bit but got lots of compliments and just like another person responded ..be prepared to give recipe. Found it browned a bit too much w cookie dough waiting for marshmellos to brown and thought it made the bars a bit chewy ...Forgot to buy butterscotch chips and subsituted whip chips and was good. Loved the peanut butter mix in it and made it fudgelike! My daughter brought it to her nurses station and they disapeared ..and guess what? They want the recipe!!"
