Almost a Candy Bar

 Almost a Candy Bar
Says Barb Wyman from her kitchen in Hankinson, North Dakota: "Because I love candy bars and marshmallows, this recipe was a cinch to invent—and I’ve yet to find anyone who doesn’t enjoy it! The quick bars make great individually wrapped treats for picnics, lunch boxes or out-the-door snacking. And with all the different layers and flavors, they’re sure to please just about everyone."
