STREUSEL TOPPED CRANBERRY EGGNOG CAKE BARS

Streusel Topped Cranberry Eggnog Cake Bars are so easy and delicious. The perfect recipe to start your fall baking with.

This is an easy and delicious recipe to get your fall baking started.  Last year at the end of the holiday season I had some eggnog and some cranberries leftover so this recipe was created.

The base is a box of yellow cake mix with additional ingredients including eggnog.  It is topped with fresh cranberries, a streusel topping and baked. 

To add even more goodness, a glaze is drizzled over it at the end.

This recipe is excellent to serve for large groups or for taking to a  covered dish as it makes 40 bars.
