    In small microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips uncovered on High 30 to 60 seconds, stirring halfway through, until chips can be stirred smooth. Spoon into resealable food-storage plastic bag; partially seal bag. Cut small tip from corner of bag; drizzle chocolate over top. Let stand about 1 hour 30 minutes or until chocolate is set. Cut into 6 rows by 4 rows. Store covered in airtight container.

Expert Tips

  • To soften butter, cut in small pieces and leave at room temperature. A faster method is to microwave butter in 5-second intervals, turning butter frequently so it's softened but not melted.
  • The secret for cutting bars easily is to line pan with heavy-duty or nonstick foil. When it is time to cut the bars, just lift baked bar with foil out of pan, and cut. This also makes cleanup extra easy.
