A lady at my church made these for snacks for the VBS leaders last summer and I fell head-over-heels for them! They are amazing! So sweet and creamy, they just melt in your mouth!

Yummy! These bars are little slices of pure delight. We can't wait to make them again... and maybe even try experimenting with lemon or orange flavors in place of the almond! The Test Kitchen
