MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 24, 2014

This bar is absolutely sinful! Loved the fudgy texture as well as the ability to distinctly taste all 3 of the main ingredients (pb, bacon and brown sugar). This recipe is one we could become "family famous" for!

Is the sugar/flour ratio right?? It was very sweet but the Brown sugar seemed gritty after baking.
