"I have found that using cooking spray{Pam} makes cleanup very simple. I also have found that if these are taken out of the oven too soon they are difficult to cut. The first time I made them they bubbled when ready but i tried to rush them once and they did not bubble and were sticky. Now that i always wait for the bubble stage and therefore the full cooking time, they are easy to cut. they are a huge hit with everybody I have made them for. They are addictive so be careful!"

"Wow! This was great! If you have trouble getting it to set up... cool-then put the pan in the frig. Then I was able to cut into bars to put on server. I will most definitely make this again!"

"What a great recipe! I had to give some away just to keep from snacking on them and wonder if they can be frozen."

"They were delicious warm and relatively easy to bake. I agree with a previous review, your cookie sheet is hard to clean-up."
