We don't have Butterfinger bars in Canada, can you suggest a substitute?
Next time I would leave out the extra flour. Not sure it really needs this addition.
Very dry.took much longer than 20 min to prepare.
Not sure I consider these "simple" but they were very good. Adult son really liked. Fairly expensive, but moist and good.
Disappointing and expensive to make. Really expected better with all the work and ingredients.
