Spring Caramel Cheerios Bars

Melissa's Cuisine: Spring Caramel Cheerios Bars

It's Spring!  Well, at least, the calendar says it's Spring.  The snow and temperature outside seem to have missed that memo this year. 

I decided that I needed some Spring in my life so I decided to make some Spring treats.  Enter Easter Candy! I love Chocolate Covered Cadbury Eggs and the colors are perfect for Spring.  I picked up a giant bag at the bulk store a couple weeks ago and it's been sitting on my counter taunting me ever since then!  These bars were a great use for a few of these candies.

Spring brings changes as well all know.  This week, a big change was announced for the blogging community.  Effective in July, Google Reader is going away.  I decided to make the change to Bloglovin' and I'd like to encourage you to do the same.  Be sure to follow me on Bloglovin' (see the link to the left), and leave me a link so I can follow you back! Here are some links to articles that tell a little more about the switch and how to do it:
