Kitchen Tip
To make cutting bars easier, line the baking pan with foil. Turn the pan upside down and cut the foil 4 inches longer than the pan. Form foil over the pan bottom. Turn the pan right side up and position shaped foil inside the pan. When the bars are firm, lift them from the pan. Remove the foil; cut into bars.
Storage Tip
Store leftover bars, tightly covered, at room temperature or in the freezer.
