The bars were simple to make and so very yummy. They were a hit at the office Christmas party and at home with the kids. Can't wait to make them again for the next occasion. I thought when I first took them out of the oven that something had gone wrong, but by the time it had completely cooled (and that really is overnight in the fridge), they set up perfectly. Thanks!
