    Ah, I love making stuff that frees up space in my kitchen. I did something similar with a baked pasta yesterday. It feels so good to not waste food, to clean things up, and to eat something awesome. I think I need one of these cookie bars now. Oh my, these look heavenly. I haven t ever made chocolate chip bars, but I think I need to. And with Reese s pieces? These look so amazing!
