“This recipe was developed for RSC #9. (Thank you Tigerduck for the wonderful ingredient list). Each bite offers a different flavor in this bar that is rich sweet and candy like. A decadent treat sure to impress. The cook time includes time in the fridge. They should be cut in very small pieces as they are very sweet!”
