Super easy to make, and delicious! Cut in 9 pieces for easy squares. Would absolutely make it again. Had Meyer lemons, so used that for the juice.

Not sure what happened with this recipe but it was SOOOOO bitter! I had to trow out the whole pan which was really sad as i was so looking forward to this! :( I did use splenda for the sugar but i've used that for sugar on hundred's of things and its worked out in the past...can't imagine why it tasted so bad.

These are supposed to be "light" desserts, but they either don't give any nutritional info at all, or give useless nutritional information. This recipe says that one bar has 172 calories and 8.9 grams of fat, but it doesn't how many bars to cut it into. The nutrutional information on the left sidebar says that each serving has 289 calories and the same 8.9 grams of fat (?????) but no serving size or number of servings in the recipe!

If you really like the taste of lemon, this is the recipe for you. So good and very easy.

I thought this was really good. The recipe says it makes 8 servings so the nutritional info is based on that. I tried the sugar substitute version for fewer calories. Nice and super easy!

um don't mean to be a b@#tch, but cavanvva please learn math. it says the recipes makes 8 servings and a serving is one bar. If you left your star rating based on the fact that you can't do simple math and you screw up the rating system it's very annoying to the rest of us. Therefore I'm going to give it 4 stars in an attempt to counter your 2 star rating. Also, where does it say this is a "light" recipe? This recipe is from Southern Living Magazine which is not a light cooking magazine. A little reading comprehension goes really far. Our American education system at work- ugh.

Obviously Cavanvva cannot comprehend a recipe and should not rate a recipe based on this fact. This recipe serves 8 nice size bars, is easy to put together and the lemon flavor is fabulous. I highly recommend this recipe and thank you so much for posting.

I am going to try to convert this recipe to SF/Low-carb as much as possible so will advise of my success. I do have additional input though. One of the highlights of my success with online recipes arecomments are fantastic ways to see how others have tried & succeeded (or not) on the original variation AND how they improvised. However, reading some of these comments REALLY bothered me, so here is my $0.02, as it were. I have been on the MyRecipe newsletter/email list from near the start and I confirm that when recipes are initially posted, they do not always include complete info (i.e # of servings). Additionally, they include links with attention grabbing titles. I can tell you that those links are not always accurately represented ("Lite', low cal, low carb) but to a hefty recipe. Snarky comments do no one any favors. Further, look at the time/date stamp from when the comment was posted. Sites update & correct all of the time. sdgolden &massleelee, consider it a teaching moment

You are absolutely correct, LJacoby. There would never be any Snickers bars left over from Halloween -- they would be gone immediately. This is a wonderful desert -- one of my wife's favorites. Next time I will add a bit more chopped peanuts. The carmel sauce really adds to the flavor. I am thinking I might try a cookie for the crust that isn't quite so intense. Maybe a lighter chocolate flavor (rather than the strong dark chocolate that Oreos have).
