this recipe is delicious. If you will add a half a cup of peanut butter to the chocolate it keeps it creamier and stops it from getting hard and breaking up. It also gives it a richer taste. The other thing I do is use milk chocolate chips. a litle secret is you can use any flavor chips you want and they all make their own flavor ie..white chocolate, or butterscotch.

They turned out even better than I expected! I lined my dish with parchment paper and that worked out great. I only used 2 cups of confec. sugar. As for the chocolate, I used 1/2 milk chocolate and 1/2 semisweet, added a tbsp of margarine and a rounded tablespoon of peanut butter. Let me tell you... the chocolate was excellent. Cutting it was no problem either. We put it into the freezer for about 15 min, then removed it to slice, and then put in the fridge to finish setting. At first we cut into large 2 inch squares, but later I cut them into smaller (1 inch) squares, which worked out better for us (see my 2 pics). They are rich, so it's perfect to have a small piece at a time. At least it worked out that way for my family:-) This is a definitaly a keeper!

Delicious! I didn't change a thing. I made two batches for a bake sale tomorrow and am disappointed I can't keep them all for myself. FYI: I figured out that 2.5 cups graham cracker crumbs is the same as 15 whole graham crackers (where each graham cracker is 4 of the small rectangles). At least that's how they do them around here.
