  • “Erin,This looks like the recipe that I have been serching for — THANK YOU for posting it.I’ll try it and let you know.A friend or mine has been making something similar for the holidays for the past 8 yrs.My husband & I love it.BUT she wont give us the recipe — I thought after the 60’s everyone started sharing recipes.Oh well.I hope your recipe is as equally wonderful as my unwilling to share friend.thanks again!”

  • “Yummy – just like I remember from making these years ago.I did cream the butter and brown sugar, then mixed in the egg yolk, then stirred in the flour.Thanks for posting this recipe, as I don’t know what happened to the one I had.”

  • “I did cream the butter and brown sugar before adding the yolk and flour. These baked up a little firmer than other toffee bar recipes I have tried, but the flavor is excellent! I sprinkled heath bar bits on top of the melted chocolate chips before cooling and cutting. They look very impressive. I cut them into 36 pieces as they are quite rich.”

  • “My Mom has been making these for years.She puts hersey bars on top after it comes out of the oven. Spreads chocolate bars and sprinkles with chopped nuts.”

  • “I have to give these 4 stars. I used a fork and mixed them well, and cooked according to the directions, mine were soggy -they never did get firm.They were EXTREMELY sweet.I really liked them, though – just not a 5 star recipe – I was thinking the dough was missing something, but I can’t quite put my finger on what it was”

  • “Sorry, but we weren’t thrilled with these bars.Wish I had read all the reviews first because someone suggested creaming the butter, sugar and flour and I think that would have been better. The bars turned out pretty dry and were sort of hard even though I cooked them for less time than stated.It was a simple recipe however, and my 10 yr old was happy to help make them.”

  • “I love these. They were so tasty and very easy to make. I even garnished the top with chocolate, cococut, and walnuts. SO GOOD!!! Thanks”

  • “The best bars to make with your children or grandchildren…as that’s how I learned to make them. No mixer needed, just your hands.These have always been a sucessful treat!Three years ago after experimenting with other crusts that failed, I decided to update these bars for the holidays.I mixed 1/2 can Almond Pie Filling with 3 Tbsp. Raspberry Preserves. This mixture is spread over the crust and baked. Cool bars before spreading with chocolate.I melt 2 Dark Chocolate candy bars in the microwave and pour over the bars. It makes it easier for spreading.Cool until chocolate is set and then cut.”

  • “These were very good, but you need to remember to cream the butter sugar and egg before mixing the flour or the texture won’t be quite right.”

  • “Quick, easy and perfect flavor. I did cream the sugar,egg, butter and flour though to get a better texture.”

  • “So Easy and fast!Took them to a cookie exchange that I had 45 minutes to make something for and everyone loved them!Definate recommend!”

  • “I was looking for a recipe I could make fast with just a few ingredients, to treat some contractors who were working on my house. They were happy with them, andthe bars fit the bill perfectly.Easy too!”

  • “Loved them!They were quick, easy and yummy.I will be making them again.”

  • “Found this came together just fine by following the suggested directions, there were none left at the baby shower!Will make again.”

  • “these are really good, but don’t overcook them, or they get hard.”
