Cranberry Bliss Bars
December 24, 2017

We were inspired to make a revised Starbuck's Cranberry Bliss bar. We used a recipe adapted from SkinnyTaste that was shared by one of our amazing clients. The makeover version is lower in calories, carbohydrates, and fat but still tastes delicious – perfect for the holidays!  We recommend sharing these bars with your friends or family :)
