I first had this desert around 1979 when my friend's mom "Linda McDonald"made them. It was in my hometown of Memphis, TN. We had been out riding sleds on the ice and I came inside to find this delicious desert!. I had never forgot about this desert and it's name "Ooey Goey Bars". I came across the Tool Cool Cookies website a few years ago I found the desert. I now make them all the time and for special occasions and people absolutely go crazy for them here in San Diego! As a matter of fact I keep print outs of the recipe handy because people always ask for for it! Tks 4 great childhood memory!
