Chocolate Crumb Bars

I have made these bars NUMEROUS times for home, work, and to take somewhere. They are always a hit and so easy to make! I always add a little more flour to the topping to make it a little more crumbly.

You can use less butter

I made this recipe with 3 tablespoons less butter than the recipe called for, and the texture was great.

This recipe needs some help. Either there is too much butter in the recipe or not enough flour to make the batter crumbly as the recipe states.

My daughter received a phone call from her uncle-in-law asking if her mom was bringing those wonderful "cookies" that she brought to last year's 4th of July party. What greater praise. These are fabulous for parties or anytime.
