I love Christmas in general but especially when Starbucks brings in its seasonal drinks and treats. They only have Cranberry Bliss Bars for a few short weeks and then they're gone. My friend made these and brought them to book group one time. I had to have the recipe and now, since I get asked for it all the time, I'm posting it.
