I found this recipe to be very very sweet. The cookie bar bottom was wonderful and would taste great by itself. The icing and chocolate together seemed too much and made this treat very sweet. Icing or melted chocolate chips would be enough.... or even just the bar by itself!

I made these for Christmas, wanted to try something different. I doubled the recipe and used a jelly roll pan. It was excellent. My husband told me to never make them again since he couldn't stop eating them, when my son-in-law returned home the only thing he wanted to take home were these bars.

These bars are great. I did half with the frosting and half without. I would definitely keep the topping. I only used 1/2 the amount of chocolate chips and it was perfect. Will definitely make these bars again
