These would probably be more appropriately named " everything but the kitchen sink" bars, but then you probably would have passed them by. It all started with an invitation to a kiddush and I wanted to make something homemade. I am quite renowned for sending the original toffee bars from Estee Kafra, and I decided it was time for change. My husband came home, took a look and commented that they weren't especially pretty. My kids walked by, each grabbed one, and turned right back for seconds. I quickly ( yup, they're that quick and easy) whipped up a second batch but still dh was not impressed. I was not insulted, it's just that he's so used to my beautiful creations! The kids were thrilled because there was now more for them! My poor friend did not get any homemade goodies. When you make these today make 2 batches because they won't last long! Have fun changing up the add-ins. I think I'm going to replace the marshmallows with peanut butter chips next time.Enjoy!
