I made these bars for my grade level team for an end-of-the-year picnic lunch and everyone gobbled them up! I told them how easy they are to make and they couldn't wait to get the recipe.

These are a new twist on a traditional brownie. The white chocolate makes them a little different. They are chewy & delicious!

Wow! These are terrific and so easy!

Chocolate lovers will love these. They are rich, moist, and so very chocolate-y! I used mini-chocolate semi-sweet morsels in place of the white ones, and I sprinkled the top with some extra chopped pecans before baking. These were my April treat for the local Police Department, and the Officers and staff all enjoyed them!

So Good
