    Mosaic Dessert Bars

    For a desert that is as fun to make as it is to eat try these mosaic desert bars. No two bars taste the same as they are made with JELL-O flavors - so each bite is different!

    Directions
    1. 
    Spray 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray. In large bowl, mix snack mix ingredients; set aside.
    2. 
    In 2-quart saucepan, mix all syrup ingredients except vanilla. Heat to boiling over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla.
    3. 
    Pour syrup over snack mix, stirring until evenly coated. Press mixture firmly in pan. Cool completely, about 30 minutes. For bars, cut into 9 rows by 4 rows. Store tightly covered.
    Tip:
