These bars are so festive I couldn’t resist making them! I honestly, didn’t even care if they came out tasting great or not because they were just so pretty but they actually were creamy and delicious, too. They’re pretty quick and easy to make using Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie mix and homemade frosting. You could probably cheat and use ready-made frosting to whip these up even faster.
