Best Turtle Bars ever!!! I also added toffee chips to one batch and coconut and white chips to another. Everyone who eats them LOVES them. Thanks for a great recipe Faye. Janett-NJ

Not sure if I did something wrong with this one but the peacans and chocolate kept crumbling off the crust. My husband and brother in law said they tasted great but they crumbled easily.

Too crumbly, too much flour, not enough gooey topping. pecans and chocolate lift off the cookie layer too easily. tastes ok, doesnt present very well.

Great recipe. Was afraid it was going to be too sweet but it was not. Not too gooey either
