  7. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until light golden brown. Melt reserved chocolate (150 g) and pour evenly on top of bars. Sprinkle with remaining ½ tsp (2 mL) sea salt. Let cool on rack. Cut into squares.

  • Try replacing milk chocolate with classic dark chocolate.
  • To melt chocolate, bring 1-2” (2.5 cm-5 cm) of water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Place chocolate in heat proof bowl and place bowl over boiling water. Ensure bottom of bowl does not touch the water. Remove saucepan from heat. Let stand 3-5 minutes and stir.
  • Complement the rich taste of these delicious treats with the smooth yet bold flavour of Folgers® Black Silk® Coffee.
