Recipe by smoke alarm jr

I just found this recipe on the back of my Dole pitted dates bag. I love dates and thought I would give this a try over Christmas vacation.

For this recipe I diced the dates & chopped the dired cranberries, then used a rounded 1/2 cup of the berries & added about 8 more dates then indicated! This made for some GREAT BARS, which we thoroughly enjoyed & will make again & again! [Tagged, made & reviewed in the All New Zaar Cookbooks Tag cooking game]
