"My colleague Grace made this recipe for her Christmas goodie boxes and it is not only impressive but delicious too. I can not believe how easy it is to make. The 1 X 2 inch graham wafere are ideal. Do not sub margerine for the butter. These will disappear quickly but if there are any left over I like to store them in a tin box in the fridge."

Easy and fun to make! After I spread the chips I added chopped almonds on top. They will be enjoyed today on my holiday table!

They turned out delicious. I used saltine crackers. They went in my goodie bags and I plan to make them every year!

I made up a small batch of these bars to test for my cookie trays. They are sure to be a big hit and I plan to put some in little flat boxes as gifts for my friends at work. They will love them as much as I do!
