There are many recipes on JAP for Magic Cookie Bars or "Hello Dollies", but I did not see many with CHOCOLATE cookie crust. Magic Cookie Bars are so good and are often part of a cookie tray for Christmas parties. Try these chocolate crust bars for something different. Your chocolate lovin' friend will thank you! Do a tray with both regular Magic Cookie Bars and these for a nice choice.
