I was experimenting in the kitchen and threw these lovely little bars together. I like them without the frosting but my sons really liked the Coconut Cream Cheese Frosting addition. Next time I make these (and there will be a next time) I think I will try a different flavor pudding mix...maybe banana or coconut just to see how that changes them. ***These taste even better on the 2nd day!!
