fudge topped cocoa chai bars

i love reading and discussing what i read, i searched for a local book club to join but came up empty handed.
so my solution was to create a book club, it has been fantastic! always great conversation, wine, food & friends- a bi-monthly get together that never disappoints. besides our shared love of reading we also are closet foodies and winos, ummm I mean connoisseurs of wine; our club is appropriately named "Reading between the Wines" - Kate is so clever!

for our last get together i was in charge of dessert; i was looking for something quick and easy and stumbled across fudge -topped chai bars from (never home) maker . a few adjustments to the original recipe and i was on  my way to a sweet treat. everyone loved them, my mom who is not really a sweets person downed 2 during book club.

  25. There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
