Mud Hen Bars

Mud Hen Bars
Two things.
1. Mud Hen Bars. What a fun name! Where does it come from? What in the Lord's name about this makes it "mud hen"y? I really don't know. But I like it.
2.These pictures are awful. They do these delish. bars no justice. Stupid old camera.

Anyway, mud hen bars are really cool. They're like...a sugar cookie, with chocolate chips and marshmallows, with this crunchy, yummy, brown sugar meringue on top. They were not one of my mostest favoritest desserts, however, they were tasty, and Michael liked them, and I think they'd be great to serve at a party (if I ever went to parties :P).

  • Add dry ingredients to the wet and mix well.
  • Spread into a 9 x 13 pan (don't be alarmed-this will be VERY thin. It's supposed to be that way, so don't freak I did.).

  1. These look yummy. I'd eat a panful. Sometimes bad pictures happen to good people. I hate when I take mine and then the lens was dirty or there's a fuzz in the pic. I need to tether mine to the laptop.

  2. This is quite the interesting recipe. I don't know how it could not taste delicious with all of the yummy ingredients. I think some of the best tasting things are the hardest to photograph.

    1. I've seen so many gorgeous photos of Mud Hen Bars. It bums me out how these do them no justice.

  3. I have never heard of these, but they sound really good, weird name and all:)
