So many different options for these bars and easy and fun to make.

The picture below is made with
A - Graham crackers
B - Chocolate chips

I didn't want nuts so I picked a second ingredient from the
C list - Rice Krispies and they were Cocoa Rice Krispies


They were very good but a bit gooey.
I didn't grease the pan because of the butter on the bottom
but it did stick a bit so next time I will grease the pan.

This recipe came from one of the Joanne Fluke mystery books but I forgot which one.
