Three stars, really tasty, but I made the mistake of trying the VERY similar No-Bake Butterscotch Bars (recipe also on the BHR website) first--those are KILLER! Once you've had the best, it was a tough act to follow! But if you don't care for the taste of Butterfinger bars (what the others taste like) then this recipe is for you! Both are easy to make.
