    I used a package of Heath baking bits instead of the chopped Heath bars and I'd added 1 tsp. salt with the egg, milk, baking soda and extract! I'd also used 1/2 brown and 1/2 white sugar! I took them along to our congregational picnic and they were very much enjoyed! This recipe is definitely a keeper for me! delowenstein

    These bars had good flavor with the brown sugar and the almond extract. Mine did not bake up as pretty as in the picture. The batter ran up through the sides and the topping was very crumbly, making them messy to cut and serve.

    These were good - sort of a cross between a bar cookie, sheet cake and candy bar all in one. I used dark chocolate baking chunks instead of Heath Bars and found they worked well, too.
