Now one of my favorite square recipies! Easy to make. I left the butter hard and processed the crust in my food processor which is quick and easy and works great. I also return the squares to the warm oven to melt all of the chocolate to make it easier to spread. I use parchment paper in my pan and simply remove the whole thing to a cutting board when cooled to cut. An excellent bar for transporting to teas, bake sales, etc., as it is not sticky and cuts evenly.
