Cherry Dream Bars Recipe

Not only does it require less than 10 minutes of active time to make these, but you’ll likely have everything you need already in your pantry. I like to work with simple ingredients to make some scrumptious recipes that are filled with flavor. Perfectly suitable to feed a crowd or just a couple of people – these bars are definitely no exception!
