chocolate chips, or to taste
milk, or more as needed
These were super easy, but the chocolate chips would not spread for me, despite the fact I poured them on the bar immediately after removing from the oven. I would have preferred the chocolate be more of a ganache-ish full layer on top, rather than a smattering of chocolate chips. The PB topping was tough to drizzle, too, despite quadrupling the milk to thin it out. Taste was good, but these were tough to make look "good". Thanks for the recipe, Briecookinglove!
Rating before eating, because like lovestohost posted, could not spread the choc chips. What a disappointment. I have another recipe that is cooked at a 400 oven, where the chips are easily immediately spread them. I even took these out, turned oven up, covered dish with foil and put back in another 5 minutes. No luck. But, I guess we should have had a clue looking at the picture given - those choc chips are not melted and spread either. Waiting for them to cool to try. Used what was left of caramel sauce, mixed with peanut butter and a little confec sugar and milk to get consistency I wanted to dribble over top.
My daughter made these and they are delicious. She didn't change anything. We talked about maybe adding rice krispies next time to give it a crunchy texture but taste-wise, they were fine as is.
