Love this recipe! The only thing I did different is that I had chocolate button's and not choc chips, so I just cut them up! Ohh and also I used mixed nuts for the topping instead of pecans. FANTASTIC... these will fix any sweet craving you have! One great recipe that was enjoyed by everyone here!

Delicious hardly describes these wonderful 5 star treats. I made this recipe for a wedding and a crowd pleaser they were. Love the flavour of cream cheese with the addition of the chocolate and nuts. you will have an empty platter and requests for the recipe. I followed the recipe with no changes. Thanks Gerry for sharing this awesome recipe, a new favourite in our home.

These bars are delicious! We had a barbecue here where I live and I brought them out after everyone was done eating. They were gone in a flash with lots of compliments from my neighbors. These are a must try!
