These bars are crowd-pleasers! I've made them with chocolate hazelnut peanut butter spread and also with Biscoff cookie spread. The secret to making them soft and chewy is bringing the sugar mixture just to a boil and then cooking for only a minute. If it boils too long, they tend to be firmer and can become crumbly. —Dawn Lowenstein, Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania
