"This is a great recipe - tastes just like Twix bars! I did not have any trouble with them being sticky or too sweet. The crust made a nice balance so it wasn't too sweet. I like these way better than the recipes that use crackers as a crust for mock Twix bars and this crust was easy to make."

"YES BERRYMO48,i found the bars to be sticky and very sweet,its like they should have been baked or something to get more of a crunch to them so they set up better,we really didn't like them because they were way too sweet,i'm going to try cooking the caramel longer or baking them for a few min. ca't hurt anything ,live and learn from trial and error they say."
