Top Review by rosie316

Made these cookie bars this afternoon to take to the neighbors cook-out / bon-fire this evening. These were very easy to put together and the flavor was pretty tasty. The texture was a bit strange, but I'm assuming that is because it uses a cake mix. I will try making these again, and maybe skip the walnuts next time. Thanks for posting. (Made for PAC 2014)
