  2. I love Hello Dolly bars! I'd hate to know how many calories they have, but they sure are good...I prefer PB to butterscotch any day.

  8. I love these but I always have such a hard time keeping the crust together........they seem to fall apart when you cut them into squares. Maybe you're recipe will be better.
