Disappointing Chocolate Bars

yuck - I followed the directions precisely. I am disappointed that I wasted all the ingredients - not to mention the calories i consumed while trying a piece! I did not like the texture nor the taste at all.

Great. Very creamy and full of good chocolate taste. My family loves them.

Amazingly Good!

The texture of these bars is ecstasy, soo moist. It kind of reminded me of flourless chocolate cake but better. I used white chocolate chips instead of the walnuts and highly recommend it, I think the walnuts would have disturbed the texture. If you love chocolate you won't be disappointed with this one.

Just wonderful!

If you only try one recipe on this website, this is the one! Rich, perfectly sweet, and a great texture. These taste like the frosted brownies at our local bakery, but even better. Will make again and again, for the holidays and just because.

Well....you may can, but you won't want to! They are so good! Very habit forming!

Better than Hostess

My kids love these and would rather take these in their lunch than anything hostess has. They will not trade with anyone else, which says a lot.

Since I am not really a chocolate fan, I have relied on my husband on the taste of this recipe. I made the bars and maybe I left it in the oven too long, but I thought they taste a little dry. My husband said they were really good. Either way they are almost gone and the next time I will not cook them quite so long.

Simple recipe

by p. pam , luck, WI on Nov. 2006

This recipe was very easy to make. Some in our home do not like walnuts so we used chocolate chips in place which made them extra rich!

My family thought these were better then brownies. The frosting makes these delicious . I thought these were better after the set for a day.
