The bars are crisp around the edges, while maintaining a dense, cookie-dough-like center. You might think they were underbaked if the overall texture didn't work so well: It's almost like brown sugar fudge. The nut selection -- buttery macadamias and pecans -- meld well with the rich flavors, but also add a welcome crunch to the sticky middle.
Sure, the cookie bar is indulgent, but it's also completely shareable. Still, while two to three people could easily get in on the action without feeling deprived, Good says there are plenty of people who horde it for themselves.
