Summer is upon us and with the weather getting hotter none of us wish to spend time in the kitchen, next to a hot stove or baking something in the oven. But that doesn’t mean we don’t want to eat delicious treats. Well there’s an easy fix to this problem – no bake bars. These take very little time to prepare, they’re incredibly yummy and you don’t even need to turn on your oven to make them.
