Charleston Chew Cookie Bars

Charleston Chew Cookie Bars

I made these delicious, chocolately, scrumptious candy cookie bars for my dad-in-law.  Next to turtles, Charleston Chews are his favorite candies.  He’s been practically living at the car lot for the past few weeks so I thought these candy bars would be a nice treat for him 🙂

I got them all bagged up & sent them to work with the Hubs.  That night Hubs came home & told me how much they were loved.

By my brother-in-law!!

The Hubs couldn’t even say for sure if his dad had gotten to try any!!  Needless to say, the bro-in-law got a jokingly nasty text message from me that night that some how turned to I should try to make beer brownies but that’s a whole nother story!

I am happy to report that the dad-in-law did eat 2 of the bars & it’s been decided that the next time I make them, he’ll find a really good hiding spot!
