Are you ready to bite into the easiest and tastiest treat ever?

These no bake bars are a snap to throw together and they are a sure fire crowd pleaser!!  I got the original recipe from Iowa Girl Eats.  I substituted butterfinger bars for Werther’s Originals.  I am not a fan of Butterfingers but I LOVE Werther’s Originals!!!

I can’t wait to try different variations of this recipe.  I think that you will love how easily you could change pudding flavors up and make a completely different treat each time.

Oh did I forget to say that you use Pudding?

Look at how beautiful and near perfect the layers are.  I have to say that it is not often that what you create ends up looking just like the picture in the cookbook.  These bars deliver!  If you want to feel like a rockstar in the kitchen then I suggest you wait no longer and get busy making these bars!

I plan on having these oh about once a month! They are seriously that good!!

Just a few hints in making these.  I crushed the cereal by hand first to ensure a smooth bottom layer.  I ran out of light corn syrup so I used 1/2 a cup light and 1/2 a cup dark.  There were no issues so if you only have dark on hand it will be fine. The recipe called for semi sweet chocolate chips, I personally prefer bittersweet, so feel free to use either.  This is very hard to remove from the pan so please take care when preparing your pan with foil and non stick spray. Follow these hints and the recipe and you will have certain success!!
