Graham Cracker Bars

Wow, it is October people! I have so much left that I need to do before the end of the year when I “officially” graduate that this whole time flying by thing is even less fun. More importantly is nailing down a job so that I don’t go without an income come the end of the year. Oh the joys of no longer being a student – boo real life!

When I was a writing/studying maniac and wasn’t baking as much, Sarah brought these delicious treats into the lab (not the actual lab of course, just our office). I immediately pulled out my camera and took pictures of them while asking for the recipe. I finally acquired said recipe, so today’s recipe was not made by me, but still felt the need to share it with the world. Just as the name indicates, they are graham cracker bars with a sweet cream filling with pecans and coconut. Yea, they’re pretty stinking amazing. They also don’t require turning on the oven which is always a plus.
