    I made these because I wanted a sweet snack to bring to work and to send with my husband to his work....I must admit that I did leave off the gummy bugs. Otherwise, it was wonderful.

    Robert Williams from DEL RIO, TX

    Boy this was great. Mr. Nestle's Good Bars, all the kids that came by the shop and tried some liked them and wanted more. It is not a simple cookie/bar to make, but well worth the work and smiles from the kids.

    Jeannine Gramstad from NEWBURGH, NY

    Kids loved it. Had to make two batches. One this way and one another way. We found pumpkin-shaped sprinkles a few weeks back & aimed to use them on cookies or the party cake for class. My boys got creative for themselves and decorated the brownies with the special sprinkles.

    Hurricane Rita Brownies!

    LORENE GOBERT from OPELOUSAS, LA

    I made these for all our many friends and relatives that are here because of hurricane rita. Everyone renamed them Hurricane Rita Brownies! I had to leave out the gummy bears because I didn't have any and can't get to the store to get them. I am also planning to make them for our halloween party with the Gummy Bears! Thanks for the memories!

    Good, not great

    Karen Schmitt from WATERLOO, IA

    These were easy to make and everyone liked them. I think if I made them again, I would save some of the candy bars when I melted the rest, so there are some Baby Ruth pieces in the brownie.

    Eileen Wolf from NEW SALEM, ND

    I found this recipe this morning and got the ingredients. I whipped them up in less than 10 minutes. I cooled them about 20 minutes by that time my grandkids were here and they really loved them! Between hubby, the kids and the grandkids, they were gone in less time than it took me to whip them up!
