"Brought these to a church function where several women asked how they were made. I substituted butter-flavored Crisco since I had only salted butter. They were well-liked. Going to try a different candy bar next time. Take out of fridge 15 minutes before cutting into bars. Yummy and easy."

"These are amazing! Be sure to make them for an event so you're not tempted to eat the entire pan yourself! VERY rich!"
