Chocolate Peanut Butter Bran Buddy Bars—Prototype 3:

What Prototype 2 was meant to be. In other words, a grand total of 12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate was used for the entire recipe. Memorial success won out this time as the crust got only the intended 10 oz. of the melted chocolate (and the filling still got the remaining 2 oz.).

However, a new concern was triggered by eating these bars perhaps a day or so after they were prepared. The Bran Buds lost their crunch! It is likely that the moisture from other ingredients rendered them more chewy and/or soggy. The result was a texture that did not seem to feel great when eaten.

Somebody suggested using Splenda (sucralose) instead of sugar to suppress the crunch's loss.
