Mini-Egg Dessert Bars

Hey guys!  Jenn here again from Clean and Scentsible.  Like many of you, I have been counting down the last days of winter and am so excited that today I finally get to say Happy Spring!  I am SO ready for some warmer weather, longer days, and pretty spring blooms.  Now that spring is here, Easter will soon be around the corner and I have a yummy treat to share with you today with my all-time favorite chocolate – mini-eggs!

Mini-Eggs Dessert Bars

These mini-egg dessert bars are super easy to make – the trick is to not eat all of the mini-eggs before you get around to actually making them!

Just layer the ingredients in a 1 quart mason jar as follows:
