    These are GREAT!! Will be making these again. First layer was powdery, but I made them just as the recipe stated and they turned out awesome. Reading the reviews really helps..

    I made these along with many other Christmas cookies. These really stood out! Everyone loved them. Great flavor and a unique addition to my holiday cookie platter.

    Made these yesterday for a dinner party and they were delicious. Rave reviews from everyone. Although they were sweet there was a nice balance of flavor. I also added whole pecans to the top and they elevated the overall bar. Yummy...can't eat more than two...but you don't need to because they are so satisfying.

    These were declared by my husband to be THE BEST. High praise indeed as he is my official taster. I did not have milk chocolate toffee bits so I used butterscotch bits and chocolate chips combined. They looked lovely, cut beautifully, and tasted fabulous. Thank you. We will be making these many more times.

    Very disappointing results for the cost of the ingredients involved. Had a very lukewarm response to these at a church pot luck - won't make again.

    Just want to add my five stars to this outstanding recipe. I followed the recipe to a "T" and cannot begin to tell you how much they were enjoyed. They were easy to prepare and super easy to eat and enjoy. The only problem...they do not last long enough. Will definitely be making these often.

    The bars were very good. Everyone enjoyed them. I had to give the recipe to my guests. I will make them again.
