Dear Starbucks Cranberry Bliss Bar,
After I saw you on display so nicely at your store, I decided to make you at home.  At the price of 2 ($4.95/ea) Cranberry Bars ( & stuff I had lying around my fridge/pantry) I was able to make 12 of  you, and if I do say so myself- a little tastier and less pasty. I even boxed them up just like your owner and gave some away as gifts.
Love always, Pattycake  ♥

Packaging/Gift Ideas

I purchased a few different types of treat boxes-I got mine @ The Container Store.   I sealed the box with a snowflake sticker and placed a holiday themed To/From Sticker on the box.   This is an excellent gift for the holidays- Bon Appetit!
