Ultimate Picnic Squares Recipe


No picnic would be complete without dessert, and that dessert ideally needs to be something that can be transported easily and has good keeping qualities. Thatís why cookies, brownies, and bars are the usual choice. The problem is that summertime is busy, and itís hard to find time to bake, and especially to choose a time when the hot oven wonít heat up the kitchen and make everyone in the house hot and miserable. Ultimate Picnic Squares can be baked early morning or late at night several days ahead, and keep well. They start with a cake mix to save time, but no one will guess because of the easy, decadent topping, which is baked on rather than spread after cooling; that makes these bars perfect for transport, since there is no gooey topping to worry about.
ĒĒ
The Official Hancock Tasters as well as a few friends devoured these so fast that they had to be made again to test whether they kept well or not. If you can hide them, they do keep well as long as they are kept tightly covered at room temperature. Ultimate Picnic Squares arenít just for summer picnics; youíll want to serve them year-round and even include them on cookie trays all through the holidays.
