Oh how I love these things! They are so addictive and so delicious, everyone who tries them loves them.? I got the recipe years ago on the Taste of Home Message Board in the Recipes section.? I am posting it below for my readers, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
(Stacey’s Notes I make a double batch of these in an 11 x 14 inch glass pan.? It also works beautifully in a 9 x 13 pan.? A single batch makes the bars too thin in my opinion.? Adjust your baking time accordingly, you have to almost double it, and watch them toward the end, you don’t want to over brown them.? Also, a single recipe of the icing is perfect.? Doubling the icing makes far too much, and I like a lot of icing.)
