EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

This recipe was one of fifteen winners in the 2007 Mix It Up with Betty! Cookie Mix Recipe Contest. More than $10,000 was awarded!

Refrigerating the bars for 30 minutes sets the chocolate so cutting and serving are a snap.

Line the pan with foil, leaving the edge of the foil above the rim of the pan on two opposite sides. Lightly grease foil in pan. Bake bars as directed. When cool, use foil "handles" to remove the bars from the pan. Cutting and cleanup are now a snap.
