I love bars and squares! This is a dessert that was brought to a beach party by a friend, and it was wonderful!!! She really gave me a difficult time in relinquishing the recipe to me. If you love coffee, you will probably love this recipe.
The photo is not mine, but it looks exactly like the one at our beach party.
