This is a quick and easy recipe and makes a great snack. I made a similar bar last June and froze them, and have been thinking about them! I like these best because they cut really nicely. No ragged edges. Pretty colors inside.
This time, I decided to put in some crushed M&Ms because why not? More colorful for the holidays.
I think these make a great little snack, and even better with peanut butter spread on.
