My Comments

This recipe is an oldie but a goodie! I admit I was skeptical … pork and beans and pineapple?  Come on!  But, turns out, it’s a pretty darn good combo. Then, there’s the frosting! It’s so good, it’ll be my new go-to cream cheese frosting for sure! 

It’s fun to make this recipe and not tell guests what’s in them until after the first bite and see the amazement on their faces. This recipe makes for good conversation! Thanks to my friend Bob for sending it to me – definitely part of my bars and dessert recipe arsenal! Have some fun with this one and enjoy!
