Notes

I went to the library and took out 1500 Best Bars, Cookies, Muffins, Cakes, And More by Esther Brody. From this cookbook I made Raspberry Coconut Bars and Krispie Toffee Triangles

both were great. When I saw this Bar I had to try it as well. And we were not disappointed. They are delicious.
