"These are so delish! I haven't made them myself, but I found the recipe for a coworker and she has made them twice now--superb! The texture and flavors combine to make a very satisfying dessert--you won't even miss the chocolate! FYI, she doubles the recipe and uses her own recipe for the icing."

"I actually didn't make this yet - I'm wondering how you can get 3 1/2 dozen bars out of a 9 in square pan. It there a misprint in the amount or the pan size?"
