Great rich, chocolaty indulgence. Cut them small and served them at a tea I hosted. They were a huge hit! They'll stay in my MasterCook "favorites". Thanks for the recipe.
These are amazing. I know I've gained at least 5 pounds from them but it's worth it!
Made these wonderful bars for my conversational English class last week and they went down a treat. I had to explain to my students that they WEREN'T brownies. :-) Subbed walnuts for the pecans. Yummy, chocolatey and sweet!
