People are always surprised when I tell them these sweet treats come from the microwave,. Chockfull of chocolate chips, the bars are especially good served with a big glass of cold milk. —Shirley A. Glaab, Hattiesburg, Mississippi

"These had a good taste. I will make them again. I did have to adjust the cooking time due to the difference in my microwave. This led me to end up overcooking them. They were a little hard, but still edible. I felt like they were not done because they were not "springy" to the touch. I didn't realize that was how they cooked in the microwave. I wish this would have been discussed in the recipe, however none of this will stop me from trying it again though."

"This was easy to make and I had all the ingredients on-hand. The hardest part was waiting until it was cool before cutting! They tasted delicious - not like baked chocolate chip bars, of course, but I wasn't expecting them to taste like something they were not."
