I have completely forgotten all about these bars and I used to make them all the time so this is another blast from the past. Making these for a garage sale selling them I made Cherry bars, peanut butter , chocolate bars , cherry pie and Rice Krispie bars with chocolate frosting. If I get up early enough in the morning I will throw together a rhubarb pie.
