  • For topping, in a small saucepan cook and stir bittersweet chocolate and 1/4 cup butter over low heat until melted. Spread over filling. If desired, drizzle or spoon melted white chocolate over topping; swirl slightly with a toothpick to marble. Cover and chill 2 hours or until firm. Using foil, lift out uncut cookies. Cut into bars.
