I really enjoyed these bars. In previous reviews, there are complaints that they are too dry. I substituted the white sugare for 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar. White sugar tends to give foods a crispier, sandier finish. My bars turned out great!

I made the first batch exactly following the recipe and the bars turned out rather dry, although I liked the flavor. The second batch was identical except that I substituted half of the sugar with an equal quantity of unsweetened apple sauce, as per the suggestion from LMCBSOP. Now they're perfect. I agree; this one's a keeper.

I really enjoyed this recipe- especially the fact that it had no added fat, and was nice and light- a good balance to the density of the gumdrops. I found the bars dried out very fast, and they were a little on the sweet side. You might try replacing one of the eggs and some of the sugar with some applesauce, for a moister, more flavorfully sweet bar. But overall, this recipe is definitely a keeper!
