  1. these are fantastic! And really easy to make!

  2. I went to make these bars with the Splenda brown sugar but chickened out because I wasn't sure how much to use. The Splenda package said to only use half of what a recipe calls for because it's double the sweetness of brown sugar. Chrissy, if you read this, how much Splenda brown sugar do you use? The full 1 cup?

  3. I made these this week and could not believe how easy they were. The hardest part for me was waiting until they cooled down so I could taste them! The whole house smelled delicious :)
