Fudgy Macaroon Bars Recipe

Sweet tooths make a beeline for my dessert tray whenever these rich squares show up. They're attractive on the platter and delectable with fudge and coconut.

"I bake cookies for a local senior center and like to try new recipes. I made these a few weeks ago and they are still raving about them. These are the most popular ones I've made so far. I did make a few changes. I upped the almond extract to 1 tsp and used sliced almonds instead of walnuts. I also sprinkled the chocolate chips and almonds on before baking. The almonds got nicely toasted. I know I will be making these often."
