Expert Tips

These bars can be served plain or with powdered sugar. You can also make them even more decadent by spreading on a layer of cream cheese frosting.

If you want to make a tray of thinner bars, spread the ingredients in a wider pan or half the recipe using the same size pan but bake for less time.
