In honor of the CMA Awards, and to celebrate this fabulous partnership, I have a few Martha White award-inspired treats to share with you. The recipe I'm sharing today is for these tasty Encore Chess Pie Bars pictured above. These yummy little chess bars start with a Martha White Chocolate Chip Muffin Mix, and few other basic ingredients.
My mama always said simple is best and you can't get any simpler than a Southern Chess Pie. Chess pie has always been a favorite dessert in our house. I made these chess pie bars and my family gobbled them right up and is already requesting an encore!!!!! Get it??? All I can say is that if you're a chess pie fan than you will fall in love with this easy pie bar version, so I hope you'll give this recipe a try.
