Reviews for Fudge-Filled Bars
"I make this recipe all the time for potlucks and church events and have shared the recipe too many times to count! They are definitely a favorite for my family!"
"The only reason for the 4 stars is because they were a little bit crumbly. However, they taste really good, so I'm willing to try again!"
"I get asked to make this dessert all of the time. Definitely a family favorite. I've been making these bars for years and they never get old!"
