A big snow storm rolled it’s way through today and dropped almost 12 inches of snow. My 5 year old was super excited for a snow day and my husband enjoyed a day home too! The bad part of a snow day is the stir crazies that you begin to feel after being cooped up, so the kids and I decided to bake some Pudding Chocolate Morsel Bars.
Because of my son’s peanut allergy, he doesn’t get to enjoy bakery type items very often. So when I bake at home it’s a special treat! These yummy bars of goodness are peanut and tree nut free the way that I made them, however – other types of chips can be used to create different types of bars. Not all chocolate chips are peanut and tree nut free so if you have a food allergy and decided to make these, please check the labels.
