Almond Banket Bars Recipe

These bars are great for any potluck, snack or party! Full of delicious almond flavor and so easy to make!

Hello blogger friends! Sheena's sister Shannon here... It's been awhile since I've guest posted on Sheena's blog.  Life has been a bit crazy for me, but I'm here today to share with you a phenomenal recipe that is perfect for the holidays.  

If you are a fan of almond flavor, then you are in for a treat with this recipe.  So a few years ago, I tried my hand at making traditional almond banket and I failed miserably. I knew there must be a way to make a delicious treat with the same flavor so I baked up these amazing bars... and to be honest, I like them better than banket!  Enjoy!
