Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I was just looking at the recipe and the instructions when to do you put the Tablespoon of vanilla in, I was guessing with the eggs? Thanks so much.

I always thought Mississippi "mud" bars was made with marshmallows (melted on top of the baked bars while still hot). In any case, these sound delish the way they are.

I very seldom make a comment on these recipes and especially on the comments. The recipes are great! I just wonder why people make such stupid comments.

I plan to bake there bars. You can't go wrong with this fab recipe. Thanks.

Read the directions. It is 1 1/2 cups of sugar.

Should the sugar and flour be reversed? That's a lot of sugar. I'd be bouncing off the walls for days!

Do you really mean 5 1/2 cups sugar???

I think it should be 2 or 2 1/2 c sugar.

Needs a picture. I can't cook anything without a picture.

I dont think you meant 5.5 cups of sugar did you.???
