"Very good bars, not real sweet, so a nice change, from all the sweets at this time of the year. I did not have the canned whole berry sauce, so took fresh cranberries and cooked them with some brown sugar, and that worked good."
"This is one of my favorites. It is a crowd pleaser, and great for the holidays. Sharon"
