2 stars, firmed up perfectly for me & one of our guests said it was their fave of all our cookies, but too sweet for my taste. I thought the pretzels (crushing them w/a rolling pin was a bit of a pain) I used were not salty enough, so I added salt to the filling, and still didn't do the trick for me.

I thought these "bars" tasted really delicious. But they didn't hold together like a bar. Even after hours and hours in the fridge, they never really firmed up and could be picked up like an individual treat. Which was really too bad because I thought they tasted really good. I won't be making them again.
