10 best Bars Recipes to tempt your sweet tooth.

If you are looking for the perfect way to end a busy week night meal, here are 10 of my best bars recipes.

My favorite type of desserts to make are bars and squares.  The main reason is the simplicity of making them.  Many bars recipes are no bake, and even the ones that require time in the oven are still easy to put together.

They are also “forgiving” in that you can substitute one ingredient for another and still use basically the same recipe.

10 of my favorite bars recipes. From date bars to lemon bars and every thing in between!

Another great thing about bars and squares is that they are so darn easy to transport. Taking them to family gatherings, pot lucks and school parties is a breeze. Just slice and stack and you are good to go.

I thought it would be fun to put together a group of my favorite bars and squares recipes in one easy spot. One of these will be tempting your sweet tooth this week, I bet!
