So apparently it used to be a saying that something ugly could be called “uglier than a mud hen.” And I guess that’s why these are called Mud Hen Bars, because somebody thought they were ugly. Which I don’t get. Can we have another look?
A delicious cookie-like crust, sprinkled with chocolate and marshmallows, then topped with a brown sugar meringue. I’ve never had anything like this before. They are sooo good. I brought these to share at a barbeque, and my friend asked if they were S’mores bars, which I hadn’t thought of but I suppose they are kind of similar. Chocolate, marshmallow, and if you don’t know what the brown sugar meringue is it can taste kind of graham cracker-y I guess.
Well, I’m off. Off to prepare for a 14 hour car trip tomorrow with a 2-year-old and a nursing 2-month-old. I’ll let you know if we make it without bashing our heads in. If you don’t hear from me soon, assume the worst. (We’re going to visit Eric’s parents. Again with the denial about moving out of state. We will have about 5 days to wrap up our lives here when we get back.) Wish us luck!
