Reviews for Chocolate Swirled Bars
"REcipe saved1 agree with JBess regardings ugar carb. count. Recipes ought to clearly state that. EVen when recipe states **Diabetic friendly** it truly makes ya wonder if that's so."
"I thought the cookie dough was a little dry and crumbly however a great idea and melting choc chips, smoothing over after coming out of the oven works splendidly however I use a full 12 oz on a 9x13 size dish. I also do the same melting chips on top of a dish of brownies!"
"Not bad- endless variation you can do. I made a batch w/ m&m's and one with crushed heath bars"
"If I am reading the directions correctly, you only use one portion of the Lightened Up Cookie Dough. Therefore, the Chocolate Swirled Bars recipe is only using 1/4 c of butter and 3/4 c of sugar plus the choc. chips."
"Have to agree with JBess. Hard to believe that cookie dough with 3 cups of sugar, topped with eve more sugar (two types of chocolate chips), could be healthy, much less diabetic friendly. Makes you wonder how accurate the other info is. I would love to see the recipes include the grams of sugar in each recipe!"
"I made these just using sugar cookie dough from the store and they turn out pretty good..."
"Sprinkle crushed pepermint candy canes on top of the chocolate before it sets and they taste even better! They look prety too!"
"didn't make it, but you could use the swirly stuff on graham crackers and cut out he cookie part"
"I haven't tryed this recipe. How would they call it diabetic with 11/2 cups of brown and white sugar in the cookie dough?I would worry about severing this at church to diabetics."
"Family loved these, and so easy to make. I swirled with butterscotch chips. Yum!"
"My son loved them. Mine didn't look as pretty, but that was probably my fault."
"It looks delicioius i think i'm gonna make it for the next festive occasion, perhaps for... whatever will see already."
