These Bars are so good I just had to find the recipe- and there it was on topsecretrecipes.com.(Todd 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!!!
Beat together the butter and brown sugar with electric mixer until smooth. Add the eggs one at a time, then add the ginger,vanilla and salt. and beat well.
Pour batter into the prepared pan. Use a spatula to spread evenly across the pan.
Bake 25-30 minutes, until the bars are lightly browned on top. Cool on wire rack.
Combine ingredient,except cranberries, in a mixer bowl and beat until smooth. Spread on bars when completely cooled.
Sprinkle the cranberries over top of frosting.
Whisk together ingredients and drizzle over cranberries in a back and forth motion using a squirt bottle or plastic storage bag, corner cut off.
Cover bars and chill for 2 hours. Then cut bars length-wise down the center -then cut then across 4 times making 8 bars and cut those bars in half diagonally making 16 triangular bars.
