I made these for a Halloween party and they were a hit! The only issue I had was that they were very soft so they fell apart easily. Otherwise, very tasty!

I brought these to a party, and they were very popular! I overheard people telling others to go try them because they were so good. However, they aren't really "bars" because they fell apart, which was annoying when I tried to arrange them on a plate for serving. If the base had actually stayed together for these, I would give them five stars.
