Holly's Note:
I found the original recipe at One Ordinary Day a couple of years ago and just let it sit in my draft folder. I wanted to try something new last week and this sounded like a great after school snack. It came together easily although I used my mixer and baked it in a greased 8 inch pan. And my boys loved it. I think it would be better with some frosting, rather than powdered sugar, but the boys really liked it. 

I was surprised to realize it didn't call for any eggs and only brown sugar.
