I got this recipe off one of the Foodie boards I'm on and it came from a Foodie Friend 'ChefBeck'. Which she says that this recipe came from her Mom........
These bars are amazing, I no sooner bake them and then they are all gone, so delish. They also freeze beautifully. My daughter added some pumpkin candies for a decoration as we just had our Thanksgiving in Canada last week. They were all gobbled up.
