It’s that time of the year…Back To School time!

Most kids get excited about the first day of school, but the rest of that first week can be challenging. You know…back to waking up early, back to going to bed on time, back to homework…

Make these scrumptious cookie bars for your kids as a back to school bribe…I mean treat! You can pack them for a lunch dessert or have them ready for an after school snack.

I make these every year! You can too. Start making them for your family for the start of this school year and make them in years to come!

In addition to school bribes, they also make a perfect addition to the Christmas cookie platter! Christmas will be here before we know it!
