“These are EXTREMELY rich!! but they are very good. When i made these, i changed a few things. To cut down on the fat, i used 1/2 cup unsweetened applesause in place of the oil, and instead of 2 eggs, i used one egg, plus 2 egg whites. I also used fat-free sweetened condensed milk. Because my family doesn't like Heath bars, i used milk chocolate chips instead. Even with all the changes to lower the fat, these are still the richest bars i have ever tasted.”
2 dozen
