Loaded Cookie Bars

Loaded Cookie Bars

 Wow, it’s already Monday.  This weekend flew by! We were super busy with working on the house, my niece’s birthday and Easter.  The inside of my house is finally almost back to normal.  I’ve been having a horrible time finding curtains for the living room.  First, I couldn’t decide on what I wanted and now that I have, I cannot find them anywhere!  I’ve been shopping countless times and every online store that has curtains? Yeah, I’ve been there.  I’ve found a couple that I liked but they are not long enough.  Apparently 95″ curtains are not as popular as 84″.  I know I’m driving my husband crazy because we can’t get throw pillows or a rug until I find my curtains.  If any of you know of a good place to buy curtains at a reasonable price ($50 or less per panel) let me know! Seriously, let me know. 

I was searching through my pantry and fridge trying to decide what sweet treat to make last night. Because Sunday evenings always call for a sweet treat. I had some leftover maraschino cherries and wanted to use them up.  I’ve never been a big maraschino cherry fan but I made my brother-in-law’s favorite dessert for his birthday that uses them. You make boxed brownies but mix in maraschino cherries.  Of course I had to try it and surprisingly, I really liked it!  They add just a little bit of sweet flavor.  These cookies bars are loaded with other goodies too, white and semi-sweet chocolate chips and coconut!

Stay tuned this week as I’m teaming up with 5 other bloggers for an awesome giveaway, including a cash prize!!
