I missed this month's Fill the Cookie Jar, with everything we had going on. I was going to let it go and jump back in next month. But, when I heard my young foodie friend "Up North" was looking for the cookie of the month, I knew I had to get back to the kitchen!
These bars are going to be a house favorite here. They are perfect for Easter, or any potluck you want to take a fun dessert bar to. You could change this up seasonally with sprinkles and M & M's for whatever the holiday or season is.
This is a soft chewy bar topped with the soft layer of puffed marshmallows, your sweet lovers will be asking for one more bar!
