Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Since microwave ovens vary, carefully watch when melting chocolate chips and butter mixture to avoid burning.
  • tip 2
    The secret for cutting bars easily is to line the pan with foil. Turn the pan upside down, and tear off a piece of foil longer than pan. Smooth foil around the pan bottom, then remove. Turn pan over, and gently fit shaped foil into pan. When it is time to cut the bars, just lift the baked bar with the foil out of the pan, peel back foil and cut. This also makes cleanup extra easy.
