Hello Dolly Bars

    Somehow the classic recipe for Hello Dolly Bars has been perverted over the years by omitting the butterscotch chips that elevate this recipe to "Nectar of the Gods" status. You will have an infinitely better result by substituting half of the chocolate chips in this recipe with butterscotch chips.

    Made these for a Father's Day potluck -- added cranberries and they are super yummy. Only complaint, the graham cracker crust was a little dry and crumbly, so not sure if more butter was needed or more condensed milk (followed the recipe extactly). Regardless of the crumbs, still a solid "bar" treat!

    Delicious and easy! I believe they are better with butterscotch chips, too. I add 3/4 cup of them to the ingredients listed. As far as the crust goes, I don't find it too dry. Doubt it makes any difference for moisture, but I process about 12 graham cracker sheets instead of using the ready made crumbs. (Update: the 12 sheets only ends up being about 1 1/2 cups of crumbs. Not dry at all this way!)

    They taste very good. But the crust was too crumbly, pretty much dust, so I couldn't slice them into bars.

    The graham cracker did not form a nice crust in the pan and it didn't stick to the squares. Very disappointing and a total mess :(
