The theme for June's "Fill the Cookie Jar" is cookies that our dad would love. I was running REALLY far behind this month, and when I needed to decide on a recipe, my dad was out of town.... Ooops! So, I turned the decision making over to Truckin' Man. His suggestion was "chocolate chip". While chocolate chips are the best cookies, it wasn't one I felt inspired to bake recently.
Then I had a memory.... A bar I had pinned several years ago. Apparently almost 4 years ago. Has pinterest really been around that long? Wow time flies..!
Anyways.... I found the pin, and the link was dead. I was heartbroken. Don't tell me I can't have this recipe. Nothing like a dead end to get me obsessed with finding the recipe.
It took a bit. I ended up having to get creative on my surfing abilities, but I found the blog, and the recipe. Thank goodness!
Man Bars. Doesn't that sound like the perfect bar for celebrating Father's Day? From all the guys that sampled this bar today, the name fits. It's sweet and chocolaty, with the perfect graham cracker goodness that everyone loves!
