2 large eggs
3/4 cup chopped walnuts

6 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter

    Thank you for posting this recipe! I made these all the time in the 80’s after finding the recipe in magazine (I think it was part of an ad for some product?) and I had lost the recipe a while ago. These are the most delicious bars! I would generally put in the entire 12 oz of semi-sweet chocolate chips and occasionally also add coconut and or butterscotch chips too. Yummy!!!
