    There are two different butter quantities listed. At first I thought maybe there was one for the chocolate melting and one for the batter, but the instructions don’t seem to show two uses for butter. Just wanted to let you know. :-)

    Skor! Wow that’s a blast from the past…I always associate skor bars with Brian and Paul. One of those random high school memories of the guys in Young Life eating skor bars a lot! Sounds like a yummy recipe :)
