I loved these bars growing up! My Granny always made these sweet little treats every Halloween. We pretended to be trick or treaters and she would hand us these bars instead of candies! Oh, man, I miss my childhood. Anyway, this recipe is one of the easiest you will ever try. Yeah, I am telling you. I even let my kids make them! Aside from the delicious taste, it is also a great bonding experience for you and your kids. By the way, feel free to add more ingredients to this recipe if you feel like it. For example, you can add Hershey’s kisses on top of each bar. We have tried it once or twice, and it was so good! My youngest calls it the “Complete Package Dessert.” May you all have a blessed day. Enjoy!
