Dessert Bar Recipes That Are Way Better Than Brownies

All kinds of yum.

Don't be mistaken, we're not saying we don't absolutely love brownies. (You should know that we do.) But dessert bars have a special place in our hearts. First, there are so many variations you can make: cookie bars, fruit bars, perfectly decadent bars loaded with lots and lots of candy. And second, they're just as easy to make as brownies.

While there is definitely a time and a place for more involved baked goods like cake, sometimes we just don't want to go through the trouble. That's where bars come in. With bars, the more "rustic" they look, the better they are -- making them all fun and almost no work.
