Christmas Trash Bars

Don’t let the instructions fool you with these Christmas Trash Bars.  While it may look like a lot to do, I broke it down with pretty much a step by step instruction.

Can you handle sweet??

If you can’t handle too much sweet, this is not for you!  I don’t do much sugar, so I can’t hang with these after one bite. That’s how sweet they are. No joking! 

When I gave one to my husband, after one bite, he asked me “Are you planning on sleeping tonight?”.  I’m like, “Yeah, why?”. He said, “Not if you’re eating these.”.  I just smiled and said, “Oh, I only had one bite. The question is, are you planning on sleeping tonight?”.  You see, he’s my taste tester and recipe checkerouter.  If he approves, then we’re good to go!!

After these are done and you start cutting the pieces, make sure you cut them small. I came up with 12 squares.  You might want to go smaller. OR, you might be a beast and go bigger. Go big or go home, right?
