Gooey spice bars are dessert perfection. The whole family will adore them.
Do you ever feel sorry for certain desserts? Is that a thing?
I think it’s most definitely a thing. Because I have an undeniable empathy for cinnamon-spice flavored anything. You know that Sylvia Browne lady who was always reading minds on the Montel Williams Show? She’d throw out some emotions, maybe a traumatic experience or two…a name that starts with an “F”? Or no…a “PH”? and next thing you know, someone is sobbing saying, “Yes!! Yes, that’s me!!”
That’s basically me with desserts. With a better make-up artist, obviously. I see cinnamon-spice desserts and I automatically feel their pain. Beloved October through February, shunned all Spring and Summer. Spice is just misunderstood, is all. It can be cool year round. Remember the epic-ness that was The Spice Girls? Pretty sure they named themselves after the cake, so there’s that.
Also, does The Montel Williams Show still exist? Or does he just do infomercials for pre-paid debit cards and health insurance now? Just wondering.
These gooey spice bars are going to be the turning point on your cinnamon-spice journey – they’re too dang yummy to be pigeon-holed. Simple, comforting, and ooey gooey deserves year round attention, don’t you think?
These bars start with a spice cake base, then get a hefty sprinkling of pecans, white chocolate chips, and cinnamon chips. A bath in sweetened condensed milk and a bake in the oven finishes these babies off. Think spice cake and 7 layer bars meet and have a passionate love affair. That’s what these bars are.
Don’t be surprised if you can’t stop eating them. I couldn’t!
They make the perfect after school treat for you and the kids. Or the perfect before-you-have-to-get-the-kids-with-a-well-deserved-cup-of-coffee treat. They don’t have to know that you took more than two bites by yourself without hearing the words, “Can I have some, please?”. At all. Ever. Seize the day, friends. Seize the day.
