Double Chocolate Bars

"A friend brought these fudgy bars a few years ago to tempt me with yet another chocolate treat," notes Nancy Clark of Zeigler, Illinois. "They are simple to make...and cleanup is a breeze! They're very rich, though, so be sure to cut them into bite-size pieces."

    I make these exactly as is - adding nothing and they are great. A bit too sweet for my taste, but I am always requested to make them for parties.

    These bars have been a favorite of our family since they appeared in the Premiere Issue of Quick Cooking! Almost all of my 6 kids are grown & away from home now, but they still request these when they come home. The whole pan goes in less than a day if they're all here. In fact, I'm making them today because my 3 daughters are home & want them. Very easy & fast to make.

    These were really good! I made them for some friends last night and everyone loved them. I did add an additional 1/2 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips to the frosting part per previous suggestions. I found spreading the frosting a bit tricky as the bottom started to come up a bit. Probably a good thing I had extra chocolate. think I may add more next time or try refrigerating the bottom part to get a bit more solid 1st before adding the frosting. But overall it wasn't a big deal and worked out just fine.

    I took other reviewers' opinions into account when I made these bars, and made them less sweet. In the filling I mixed 3 oz. unsweetened chocolate, 3 oz. bittersweet chocolate chips, and 1 t. espresso powder with the condensed milk. For the topping I used chopped walnuts and dispensed with the second layer of chocolate chips altogether. They were very good that way, although I could not taste the espresso in the filling. The next time I make them I would use espresso powder, and I might even try all unsweetened chocolate with the condensed milk in the filling.

    What a hit! I did add a little vanilla and a dash of salt for a more fudge-like bar. Yummy!

    A little too sweet for me, but my kids love these! Very simple to make! You have to let these bars cool completely before you cut them or they will fall apart. I let them sit for about 4 hours & they got really firm.

    these are great! because of the comments i added another tablespoon of butter to the cookies and used the suggestion about adding more chocolate to the milk. they came out great, not crumbly at all. because of the warm weather, we put them in the freezer & they were a wonderful, cold & fudgy treat!

    Delicious and beautiful! I only baked the bars for 8 minutes and already my mini chocolate chips were starting to sink in, so I would suggest lessening the baking time. Otherwise, no complaints!
