Pat's notes for this recipe:
These Bars are so good I just had to find the recipe- and there it was on English).
This is such a good recipe and I wanted to share it with you too, because it is only available during the winter holidays.
Now you can make a whole pan-full for the cost of one bar from Starbucks.
Goodness eaten to the last crumb! lol-Enjoy!!!
