We are smack down in the middle of winter and the winter blues are starting to get us big time. We finally got some serious snow fall the other day. The kids can make snowmen and have snowball fights. But this cloudy, cold weather makes me crave color! Yes, color! I find that color is a great therapy for the seasonal blues.

A plateful of these soft and chewy bars is sure to make you smile!
