    Great Sale Item

    Lou Simorelli from MIAMI, FL

    I recently made this item as a try me treat. It went over very well and has become a good sale item. For those who like the extra liquor taste, add additional liquor as others have suggested. It adds a more delicate flavor.

    One of the Best!!

    ROSE BLACKFORD from Robins, IA

    I've made these the past couple of years and my family LOVES them! This year I substituted the chocolate vanilla swirled chips instead of the chocolate chips and they are great that way also. One of the best recipes for Holiday baking.

    I love Amaretto and I love this recipe. Added a little more Amaretto than it called for though. This recipe is so easy. Sometimes I make it with Raspberry liquor or Orange liquor, both area hit.

    SO good with a cup of coffee

    Ms. Blaschuk from FARMINGDALE, NY

    These were great. Next time, I will probably add more amaretto, just because I really like the taste. The chocolate and amaretto go so well together. I brought these to school and everyone flipped. I saved a few at home for my husband and I. They are PERFECT with a cup of coffee, after dinner, for just the right treat to finish off the meal.

    Chocolate Amaretto Bars Ummm!

    YVONNE FUHRMANN from STERLING HEIGHTS, MI

    These bars were easy to make and even easier to eat! They reminded me alot of the magic cookie bars. They were easy to overbake though, so you have to watch that. Will I make them again? ABSOLUTELY!!!

    Linda Bull from RACINE, WI

    These bars are excellent. The next time I make them I will put more Amaretto and/or almond flavoring. I took half the batch into work and they were gone within 1 hour! I also melted semi-sweet chocolate chips and drizzled this over the top.

  •  Star(s)

    Fabulous!!

    JENNIFER CHILDERS from Westerville, OH

    I love the flavor of amaretto and chocolate together, but always seem to have difficulty finding a decent recipe. This fit the bill perfectly. They were easy to make and tasted fabulous. My husband and I are addicted to them!!

    Easy to make, also easy to overcook. The adults liked them, the kids didn't. I think they weren't sweet enough for the kids. I may or may not make them again.
