    They look like a gooey mess, but they are so delicious that people asked me for the recipe. This is easily doubled and baked in a 9x13 pan.  -  08 Aug 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I have made this twice. Because it was so mediocre the first time, I thought I had made a mistake. To me it was nothing like a candy bar. It was kind of dry and not gooey. Great idea as far as ingredients, but I don't think it is a winner!  -  21 Aug 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    If this turned out dry, it was over-baked. It is good, several compliments. Watch the broiler!!! One minute goes fast!  -  22 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
