This is the last week of school here. I am not sure I am ready for summer break. After spending the long weekend with my son, and him being bored when we weren’t actively doing something, I think it will be a long summer! His teacher just sent home a 10 week course of “homework” to work on over the summer. It isn’t much to do each day, but at least we will have something to work on!
This afternoon my son has field day at school. He really wants me to go watch, so it should be a fun afternoon! Unfortunately, the school district doesn’t allow homemade treats for the kids. These bars would be a great treat for after all the running around they are going to do.
I did learn an important lesson with these bars. Ok, not the bars, but the frosting. I tried to use a sugar substitute for the powdered sugar, and I combined that with the Duncan Hines flavor packets. Not a good idea! Stick with regular sugar, and regular flavor. Maybe the flavor packet would have worked, if it weren’t for the strange taste of the sugar substitute. But with regular frosting these bars are sweet, soft, and delicious.
