"These bars are easy and taste very good. If I make them again I think I'll use a different topping recipe. The butter seemed to float to the surface; I had to blot the bars with paper towels. It tasted good but just didn't look right."

"I have made this a few times,all GREAT Ratings..The (ONE) thing i did do was to line the pan with foil and spray it with oil before baking the Graham cracker crumb bottom. It makes it so much easier to cut it."
