Yummy Bars

OK, so it’s in AOL’s advertising section, BUT one of our recipes was featured in the premiere issue of hot.dots magazine… a new publication by the In Style folks.

Figured I should share it with you here as well. This recipe has been in my family for years, but I’m not really sure of the origin (though I suspect it probably came from a box of cake mix <g>)
