An extremely rich, yet delicious cookie bar!! Walnuts aren't the only nut you can use try any of your other favorites like pecans, peanuts or cashews.
HELPFUL TIPS THAT HELPED ME: If you're like me, you'll probably be thinking "this is way too sweet" while you put all those chocolate chips on top of the crust & YOU'LL BE RIGHT! LOL I think 1/2 cup of one or a little less than 1/2C of each is perfect!! If you do chocolate chips only, try using a mixture of semi-sweet and milk chocolate. It's an amazing blend that I always get comments on!!! Second, mine turns out perfect using just a 14oz (1 cup) can of fat-free sweetened condensed milk. Thought that may help someone when trying to decide what can to buy w/o pre-measuring. I just drizzled all over, and it covered it perfectly! Lastly, when I don't have a box of graham cracker crumbs, I just use quick oats, and it still turns out good! I like to individually wrap these in plastic wrap so the kids can just grab and go. I'd say "grab and share" but they'd prefer eating the whole thing themselves! - 14 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These are always the first to go during the holiday period. I usually increase the graham cracker crust so the bar has a more solid base and the chocolate and butterscotch chips to 1 cup vs 3/4 cup. Wonderful recipe! - 10 Jan 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Substituted Quaker Quick 1 Minute Oats for graham cracker crumbs -- worked beautifully. Try it! - 06 Sep 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
