If kids want a sweet snack in Germany, we give them those milk bars. Well, we actually buy them at the store there. I never even had the idea to make them myself. But since I can’t get them in the states, I had to figure out a way, how to bake them, because life without them just doesn’t feel right 😉
So I did some research (browsing the internet and telling my mom to buy some and tell my what ingredients are listed on the package). After three days in the kitchen, trying back and forth, and almost going insane, I had the perfect recipe.
They taste exactly like the store bought ones, just without all the chemicals in it. I am so proud of myself!
Never ever will I go back to buying them. They are a big hit in my family, and they also wouldn’t buy it anymore. Even my son likes those ones better.
Don’t miss out on them, start baking
