Oooey Gooey Squares

For Memorial Day I was looking in my cookbooks for a new dessert bar recipe to share with our friends.  I love get togethers as it's the perfect time for me to to try out new recipes on the willing vicitims, ah hem I mean participants.  I had checked out of the library Holly Clegg's "Trim & Terrific Freezer Friendly Meals" and found the perfect bar recipe to try.  Oooey Gooey Squares.  Just the title of the recipe was enough to catch my attention.  Sometimes we just crave something oooey gooey oh so goody!!!  I found the recipe to be very easy to make and the result was OMG worthy and my participants would most certainly agree too.  This little sweet treat recipe is definitely making it into the standard, must have, family collection.  I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!  Another great perk about these heavenly bars, you can freeze them!  That's if they last long enough to make it to the freezer!
