These were easy to make and my husband likes these. I think these were actually better on the second day. I will make these again.

The flavor of these bars are to die for! I will say that the texture/consistency is a little off, though. I tried in the 9x11 pan, as well as the 8x8, and the 9x11 worked better. These didn't...
