    Now place the pan in the refrigerator! A metal pan cools off faster than glass. It needs to cool down, so you can cut them, but not so cold that they wont cut. :-0 ( It took about 35 minutes for me. Now cut them into bars. If they keep running together , put them back in the helps to dip your knife into hot water when cutting.
