Because I'm such a fan of raisins, I did add another 1/2 cup of 'em to this recipe, but otherwise followed it right on down! Well, I did only cut the entire batch into 24 bars, but other than that . . . Wonderfully delicious, & although I wasn't going to include the icing, I did, & that thin drizzle was just enough more sweetness to make it special! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!
