Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
The easiest way to drizzle sweetened condensed milk over these bars is to pierce 2 holes—a large and a small one—in the top of the can. This allows air to get into the can and makes the milk flow out much smoother than it would without that second hole.
Make-ahead magic! These bars are great when made the night before, and they can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
