"These are one of my all time favorite go to desserts. I keep the dough in the fridge to prevent it from getting too sticky until I am ready to use it, I also use some flour on my hands when pressing the dough into the pan. They are easy to make and require only a few ingredients, I always get recipe requests."

"I took these recently for a youth event at church. I liked them the day that I made them, but they were better the next day cold from the frig. I personally would have given them 4 stars, but the kids at church seemed to really like them so I bumped it up to 5 stars."

"Very good, it was a little more gooey than I thought it would be, so I cooked it more. But the taste is awesome."

"My husband gave this ten out of ten! That doesn't usually happen! I made them for a church gathering and they were all gone in a flash! So I had to go back home and make some more for us! I have a chocolate chip bar recipe that I used for the batter. It worked great!"
