    Really good! I overlooked it slightly, so next time I will make sure not to go over 20 minutes. It does taste a lot like an Almond Joy.

    A lot of ingredients and time consuming a bit but got lots of compliments and just like another person responded ..be prepared to give recipe. Found it browned a bit too much w cookie dough waiting for marshmellos to brown and thought it made the bars a bit chewy ...Forgot to buy butterscotch chips and subsituted whip chips and was good. Loved the peanut butter mix in it and made it fudgelike! My daughter brought it to her nurses station and they disapeared ..and guess what? They want the recipe!!

    Wondered if it would be even better with almond butter. Has anyone tried that?
