Christmas Cookie #14 - Mars Bar Squares

Mars bars were one of my favorite chocolate bars growing up. When I was little, I played Ringette and after every game my Dad would stop at 7-eleven and treat me to a drink and a chocolate bar. Most days I would choose an iced tea and the chocolate bar was always either Mars Bars or Areo.

Which is probably why I love this recipe so much. Melted mars bars and chocolate topping. Yup, that's my kind of combo.
The kids also love this recipe. As we were cutting them into squares this afternoon, I could barely keep their little fingers out of the pan and they had absolutely no problems eating all the leftover edge pieces.

Don't worry.... I am planing a non-chocolate recipe for tomorrow. I do realize that this countdown has been super chocolate heavy :)

Our Lesson: Thank you God for Papa. We are so blessed to have him in our lives. He spoiled me back when I was little and he most certainly spoils the kids now! (He even has a "candy counter" at has house that the kids love to visit. Yup, that's right, a counter in his kitchen dedicated to displaying all kinds of sweet treats. Think old fashioned candy shop and you'd be picturing my dad's candy counter :)

Mars Bar Squares

3-58g Mars Bars
