  1. These look absolutely mouth-watering! Look at us…my post today is also a GOOEY (caramel coconut) bar! I love anything!!! with cream cheese. These are YUM! It looks like there’s a layer of chocolate? But I don’t see choc in the ingredient list…am I imagining it’s chocolate? =D I do DREAM about chocolate, so maybe…teehee And certainly! I would HAVE to eat these warm…no waiting til they cool.

  2. You are not helping my diet!! I guess I’ll have to try these this week while the girls are home for spring break. Maybe I won’t eat as many that way. 🙂 I took your S’mores Bars to a volleyball tournament recently, and they were a hit! Makenzie and I loved the Sausage and Saurkraut soup also.

  3. You can make these different flavored too! We make these and add things to the cream cheese filling. Such as (ready for this?) chocolate chips, peanut butter (and chocolate chips), white chocolate chips and raspberry preserves, M & M’s, caramel pieces, cocoa powder; white chocolate chips, crushed candy canes and peppermint extract for Christmas time; pretty much anything you can think of! If you’re adding liquid ingredients, though, I definitely recommend compensating by adding more powdered sugar. SO good!

  4. Mouth watering yet again…..I made something like this today with yellow cake mix cup of peanut butter and chocolate chips…..Fantastic !!!!
