Used almonds and used 4 tbsp butter for the top layer instead of just 1 tbsp so the chocolate was softer. They are amazing!
Apparently these were very good, though I never actually ate one. I make these for my friend and they were quite simple.
This is the perfect recipe for these bars.I have the same one in my recipe book but I got it elsewhere.I was going to post mine but here it is.The only change I made was to use oreo cookie crumbs instead of graham.I used toasted pecans in the crust also.So simple to put together but oh so good.
