I debated on sharing this recipe. When I first tried them I questioned whether or not I liked them. But I kept eating them. And kept eating.

The more I ate these bars the more I liked them. They stayed fresh for days. And they had cream cheese frosting slathered all over them. Cream cheese frosting makes EVERYTHING better, well at least that’s my motto.
