Henry's Jerome Bars

Recipe by debbies dishes

I worked in medicine 40 years. Every Holiday a man I worked with would bring these in. I begged for years for the recipe to no avail. When he retired he gave me the recipe on the condition I would continue the tradition. I did. Now I am retired and these are too good to be a secret so I post them here for everyone to enjoy and to continue his tradition on a larger scale.

The filling in these reminds me of those Christmas date ball candy thingies, which I love. Easy to put together, and I really liked not having to bake these. They are super-sweet, but the sweetness tones down a tiny bit once these are fully chilled, so I definitely recommend allowing enough time for these to get cold before serving. I cut them pretty small (a little goes a long way), so I probably ended up with more like 36 bars rather than 24. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2012
