Oh... and another note: these should be served hot from my experience. The chips harden when cooled and the bars turn crunchy.

Wasn't thrilled with the way they came out. A neat idea, but the taste for me wasn't as satifying as I had hoped. Just a little disappointing. Honestly, I would ditch the merinque and put a whipped cream on top when served.

Well, these look delicious, but I made them with a doubled topping. I halved the recipe other than the meringue. I hope they will still be okay.

Yes, it is a Keeper...I will try grinding in my Ninja, but everyone really liked them ( I just chopped the nuts a bit) and did the ones on the top, a little more than cracked.....That Meringue makes the whole thing more wonderful....Super Keeper...
