They look like a gooey mess, but they are so delicious that people asked me for the recipe. This is easily doubled and baked in a 9x13 pan.

I have made this twice. Because it was so mediocre the first time, I thought I had made a mistake. To me it was nothing like a candy bar. It was kind of dry and not gooey. Great idea as far as ingredients, but I don't think it is a winner!

If this turned out dry, it was over-baked. It is good, several compliments. Watch the broiler!!! One minute goes fast!

These taste okay, but not very caramelly. The dough for the crust was very wet; could not be "pressed" into the pan. I felt they needed something, so I sprinkled chocolate chips on top and returned it to the warm oven to melt. Once melted, spread the chocolate around with the back of a spoon. As a whole these turned out more like a cookie bar than a candy bar.

These were so good plus pecans can be subbed for cashews. They keep in fridge for a couple weeks if wrapped.

I think it needs another liquid like vanilla extract. I can smell and taste the egg too much, and i don't think that's right. It tastes good though. But could be better.
