Recently I threw a surprise birthday party for my husband.  He was turning 30, and since I had so many other things to do I wanted an easy treat I could whip up in a snap.  These Magic Bars turned out great and everyone gobbled them down in no time!  Oh, and my husband was completely surprised by the party and we had a ton of fun catching up with old friends!  If you want a super simple and fast treat that tastes great, try these Magic Bars!
