Red White and Blue Berry Bars

SONY DSC

These bars are freaking amazing.  They are free of all the top allergens so pretty much anybody can eat these…and they are just so decadent.  I am totally going to make these to take to my next Mom’s Night Out Wine and Dessert night.  They are also so rich and filling I don’t feel the need to have a second or third piece immediately like I would with brownies or cupcakes.  I am not a chef by any means.  I was impressed at how easy these where to make and that they actually worked!
