Sweetie Pie Bars

Over the past 3 weeks, I’ve seen Krusteaz Sweet Potato Pie Mix at 3 different grocery stores. In all three stores there was a shopping cart with a “sale” sign with at least 15 boxes of Krusteaz sweet potato pie mix. This got me thinking?? Either the grocery stores needed the shelf space for a more summery dessert mix or the dessert mix was sent too late or people don’t want to make a sweet potato dessert in the summertime. Whatever the reason, is anyone’s guess.

Dessert Pie Mix

I decided to take a look at the dessert mix, so I picked up a box and read the directions. It seemed easy enough, so I checked the price and date on the box. The date read 08/11/2018, so the mixed wasn’t expired and the price… .99¢. Well ok, I’ll bite! On the back of the box there was a recipe for Sweetie Pie Bars, I read on. I only needed a few extra ingredients to make the bars, which I already had, so Sweetie Pie Bars it is.

Easily Adaptable

If you don’t like using box mixes, this recipe is easily adaptable to your favorite pumpkin bar recipe. Don’t have a favorite pumpkin bar recipe? Use ours: Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting. Follow the recipe for pumpkin bars but instead of making the cream cheese frosting, simply whisk together 6 oz. marshmallow creme and 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk until smooth. Drizzle over pumpkin filling, top with nuts and bake.
