These bars are baked with your oven on the convection setting, which means it will circulate air around the dish so the top, bottom, and sides are all getting cooked at the same temperature. If you’ve never cooked with convection before or want to learn more about it, check out our post 5 Tips to Cooking with Convection. We used the Wolf E Series 30″ Electric Oven with dual convection, as well as the Wolf 48″ Gas Range for this recipe, and it turned out perfect!
