Dessert bars can be one of the easiest desserts to make - especially with many of them being no bake! (music to the ears of many!)

You can toss a plethora of sweet, crunchy, chewy ingredients in to give an old recipe a holiday flair or to use up odds and ends in your baking pantry - everything from crushed candy canes, cookie chunks, bits of fruit like cranberries or raspberries, lemon zest, pretzels, dates, or nuts.  The list is only as short as your imagination.

You can also liven up your holiday dessert trays or open house sweets table with these 30 festive bar recipes from FBC Members!
