"I made this bar for a special school function and it was the hit of the cookie tray. I think this will be a new cookie I make for my Christmas trays, too! This is excellent and easy."

"The chocolate-Glazed Almond Bars are a real keeper. Three squares of the melted bitter-sweet squares though are more than enough to glaze the bars."
