Additional Info

I waited for so many days to make this and today I finally did. It came exactly how I wanted it to turn out. Original recipe calls for walnuts but I used cashew and almond and still it came so yummy. The bars were crisp on the bottom and extremely chocolaty on-top. If you have some dark chocolate chips, you could skip the cocoa and add that instead.
