"I had a difficult time peeling wax paper off of the bars. I did grease liberally. Will try silpat silicone non-stick mat next time. Taste is very good. Graham crackers did not break evenly or cut evenly out of the box. Prefer to leave graham crackers whole and cut with sharp knife when set. Also prefer milk chocolate, similar to the classic 'Heath' bar."
