These bars are spectacular. The first time I made them, I pressed them in the pan too hard and it was torture to cut them! Make sure to lightly press so that they're easier to cut. Great reci...

These are an old family favorite and super easy but DO NOT let the corn syrup come to a bubbling all-over boil. That's what makes them hard! Just let the sugar melt with tiny bubbles around the ...

This is my favorite desert bar recipe! I found that melting the chips in a double boiler results in a smoother topping than melting them in the microwave.
