This is a delicious and quick way to make a little treat for your family that contains the best ingredient ever, Heath Crunch. I made this recipe for a 8 X 8 pan because my family only likes to eat bars and cookies the first day they are made. Feel free to double it and bake it in a 9 X 13 pan if you want more.
I will preface this paragraph by telling you that these are fantastic just as they are with no adorning but here are a few ideas if you want to jazz them up a little. I had a little homemade dulce de leche in the fridge so I heated it up and drizzled a little on one of the bars. I melted a little dark chocolate and drizzled that on one of the bars too. I actually think my best idea for these would be to put a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream on top of them. When we moved to California, we learned of pizookies, it is a local dessert that is a warm cookie with a scoop of ice cream on top of it, kind of amazing. Anyway you serve it, you are sure to enjoy these.
