    LuckyMomof3's Note:

    These go well on any goody platter. They're great for valentine's day parties 'cause they're pink! I also pair these with my Chocolate Mint Nanaimo Bars on Christmas platters. Green and red, what's more Christmasy? The filling is so good with chunks of cherries throughout YUM!Note: Don't let the long list intimidate you...these are really easy to make and time below includes chilling times.

      These were so good! I had pecans on hand so I used those instead of almonds for the base. Added a bit more chopped maraschino cherries to the filling and we enjoyed this so much. Chilling time should be followed closely for the bars to set up.
