Heart Attack Bars

Liza did a Toyota kick when we arrived at her Bunco and her friend Taryl walked in with these bar cookies. Oh my! When you look at the ingredients, you'll see why they are called Heart Attack Bars, but if you made them for a group to share, and showed some self-control, and didn't eat the whole pan, they could just be semi-painless and as Taryl put it, "nummy deliciousness"! Who am I kidding? You'll want to eat the whole pan! Seriously, they're killer cookies! Taryl sent me the recipe this morning and made my day! A must try recipe!
