This month I am participating with some blogger friends in a fill the cookie jar event. It’s actually a monthly event but this is my first post. The theme is Valentine’s Day so I made a family favorite to share. Valentine brown sugar bars take little time to make and are perfect for dessert, a lunchbox treat or class party.
Cynthia from Feeding Big hosts this the link-up and I encourage you to check out the links to all the other Valentine’s day goodies. Past installments of fill the cookie jar have offered amazing recipes and I’m sure this one will be no different!
What I love about these Valentine brown sugar bars is use red and green M&M’s and they are Christmas. Use blue and white and they are Hanukkah, or red, white and blue for July 4th. If you really want to get creative, purchase your school colors and make them for a bake sale! I would venture a guess they sell out.
I like to make these for my kids lunch boxes. They are a perfect surprise treat. You probably have all of the ingredients in your pantry and refrigerator. When making these bars use a wooden spoon and hand mix them. The dough is this and will require elbow grease but it’s worth the effort. Start checking for doneness at the shortest amount of time.
