I love the Cranberry Bliss Bars at Starbucks but they are only available seasonally so I decided to create a version for our Sweet and Simple readers. If you like the Cranberry Bliss Bars at Starbucks you will love this recipe for Cranberry White Chocolate Bars. They are a great treat to bring to a party or to work for an end of the week treat. Enjoy!
