These Ooey gooey cookie bars are so good- took them to bunco club- all gone. Will make again soon. Can make with light or dark chocolate.They are so yummy- tastes just a Milky Way candy bar.

Photo shows bars need to be frozen before cutting. I was anxious to try them- they were delicious and a hit a Bunco club!

If you don't like these check out the microwave ones. Simple.
