Cherry Bing Bars

Have you ever heard of Twin Bings?

These are one of my Mom’s favorite candies. They were created near where I grew up, were present through most of my life, and then I realized they were a regional thing. Huh. 

I do know, now, there are other very similar candies around, but this recipe is one my grandma used to make every year at Christmas time.
