Chewies

SWEET is a good word to describe these. 
Especially when that word is made out of powdered sugar. 🙂

These chewie bars are a family tradition. Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without them! Last Christmas my Grandma and I were making these and she told me how this recipe had changed over the years. She said that when she made them with her grandma as a young girl, the recipe had chopped dates, white chocolate, mashed banana, and a ton of other stuff. When it was baked though, they tasted pretty bad. So, they came up with this recipe. And this one tastes pretty darn good.

Based on this picture, I think you’ll like them.

Oh, and this one, too.
