To say it is a favorite is an understatement! I have been making this recipe since it came out in the October 1999 issue of Taste of Home's Quick Cooking Magazine. Yes, I still have it in my little recipe book. :) It now goes without saying or requesting, that I bring these bars for ALL of our get togethers of family and friends alike!
