    So easy to make, tastes so yummy!  -  29 Oct 2015


    Hi! After trying this recipe I found I had only one suggestion. You need to almost double the amount of chocolate you melt down to cover the bars to ensure getting a nice even layer. I used two extra bars and still didn't have enough. The only reason why I didn't give the Kid Friendly rating a 5 was because I didn't test this on kids. I made it for a work treat for my birthday. Although, these guys could be considered kids, I guess. Great recipe, and I would definetely use it again!  -  27 Mar 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These are great! To make it easy, I use a bag of milk chocolate chips instead of the chocolate bars. Just put the chocolate chips over the still warm bars, cover and let set for a few minutes to soften, then spread evenly.  -  28 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
