I tried to find the origination of Mud Hen Bars but couldn’t find anything. I couldn’t find where they were developed and why the heck they were called ‘Mud Hen’ Bars. That’s the craziest name ever!

Nor, is Mud Hen Bars the prettiest dessert I’ve ever made!…. Maybe, that’s why they are called Mud Hen…

Caramel Chocolate Mud Hen Bars

Beyond the crazy name and the not so prettiness of this dessert, Caramel Chocolate Mud Hen Bars taste wonderful! Amazing even! They are similar to a blondie but with the chips on top instead of mixed in the batter. They are layered bars with a cookie-like base. The second layer has caramel, chocolate chips, and marshmallows. I topped all this with a brown sugar meringue. It is gooey with a very thin layer of crisp on the top.

In short, they’re full of texture and flavor. As well, they are crazy easy to make even with the meringue topping!

And, the name’s a little wacky!

More delish bars you’ll enjoy!
