I'm opening a shop and would like to offer not only my designer cakes but cookies and other types of pastries like cheesecakes, turnovers etc. and brownies. If you have any great recipes/ideas please let me know.

I have seen versions of this bar in high-end bakeries. This recipe generally tastes better than those in the bakeries. But it does have to be stored in the refrigerator.
