Gumdrops or holiday M&M look festive in these classic bars! I ususally use a dish slightly larger than the square size, preferring a thinner bar. TIP- once completely cooled bars can be gently turned out into cutting board and cut with a large sharp knife resulting in perfect squares and placing in airtight container. As a volunteer feild editor with Taste of Home magazine I enjoy recipes that give variations to classic recipes.
