Cranberry Orange Bars

If there was ever a fruit that just paired perfectly with the holidays, it would be cranberry! You can cook, bake and even decorate with them!

This week in the kitchen, we made Cranberry Orange Bars! The recipe is simple, easy to make and is great for your little ones to help with!

This tangy and tart mixture is a delicious treat that would be a perfect addition at your holiday table! (Unless you don’t have much will power and end up eating these bars for breakfast like we did!)

For this recipe, we tried Challenge Butter. I love the fact that it is made using natural ingredients and doesn’t contain any added growth hormones.
The quality of the butter is smooth, creamy and gives a rich taste to your baked goods.

You can taste the REAL difference that REAL Challenge Butter makes in all of your holiday dishes!

Let me know how you like it! Happy Holiday Baking!
