These bars are AWESOME!! the original recipe called for 2 cups sugar, I decreased the sugar amount to 1-1/2 cups which was plenty sweet. To reduce the fat, use half oil and half applesauce. If you like more spice then increase the nutmeg and cloves. These make a ton of bars!

These are very good. The only thing I did differently was to decrease the whipping cream to 1 tbsp. for the frosting. Will definitely make again!
