Absolutely delicious! Definitely the best sweet I've made so far this holiday season! It's very fragile though, so you'll want to factor that in your storage plans.[EDIT: NOT fragile now, read below] Also, the condensed milk sort of glues it to your pan, so either keep the milk away from the pan edges, or figure out some method of freeing your bars from your pan without ripping them into pieces. As a side note, using 4 cups of just chocolate makes for an extremely rich treat. (I used milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and Almond Joys.) Next time I will very likely substitute one of the cups of candy with peanuts, so as to make a less rich (and less gooey, and less time-consuming, cutting up 4 cups of candy took me over an hour) treat. I will definitely make this again! EDIT 12/24/09: I have made this many times now, my family demands it. Now I line the pan w/parchment paper. I spray my hands w/PAM spray before putting in the crust. I press the goodies into the milk to get them stuck firmly in there. I let it COMPLETELY cool after cooking & remove the entire thing from the pan using the paper. I peel the paper away from the sides, and slice away. I use a 9x13, and I get 28 dense, delicious bars. They're no longer fragile, as they were in my original review. Hope this helps someone!
