Triple-Chocolate Strawberry Bars: Substitute strawberry pie filling for the cherry.

Betty's Tip: Shiny metal pans are preferred for making bars because they reflect the heat away from the bars, preventing the crust from getting too brown and dark. If using dark nonstick or glass baking pans, follow the manufacturer's directions, usually reducing the oven temperature 25°.
