Ooey Gooey Bars

Ooey Gooey Bars

These Ooey Gooey Bars are a bite of heaven of on a fork! They are often called Neimun Marcus Bars

Either way – Seriously!

I’m telling you folks it’s paradise and it couldn’t be easier.  

Why do I say that?

Because the crust of these Ooey Gooey Bars begins with a boxed mix, and usually – what can I way, it’s not always the best way to begin a recipe.  

But this, oh, I dare you to see if you can tell the difference!

Now for the filling.  

As it cooks, it develops this ooey gooey amazing, fabulous, yummy center that you can’t describe.  

You’ve got to make these Ooey Gooey Bars and try it.  

When I first had these, I thought the crust was a glaze, but NO!  

As the Ooey Gooey Bars cools, it creates this thin crispy scrumptious topping all by its self. 

You gotta make these fabulous treats, you’ll love them, and so will your family and friends.
