It's Cookie Carnival time again! We have been given two recipes (second will be up tomorrow), one of which is for the kids. I am excited about this because it gives me the opportunity to post a LONG overdue "Cooking with Anya". :)
We LOVED these bars and they didn't last long in the house. Anya had a blast putting them together. Here is what she had to say:
I liked them and they were delicious and very fun to make. They have crust, chocolate chips, and marshmallows. They are very beautiful. Make sure to put them in the oven. You can make them for dessert any time. Like I said, use marshmallows, chocolate chips, and crust in the square pan and put in the oven so it is nice and hot. It will be done and it will be good. And this is what I like to say. And it was very good. I couldn't stop liking it and it was the best dessert ever. The end.
