    Molly53's Note:

    Lunchboxes aren't just for kids anymore. They also belong to hard-working people who like to "brown bag" their midday meal (or supper, in the case of late shift workers). These cookie bars don't need to be limited to the lunchbox. They're perfect with a glass of icy cold milk. From an old newspaper clipping.
