My father's name was Corry, my son's name is Corry and these yummy bars are lovingly called "Corry bars."
For years and years, right around the holidays, my father would spend many evenings making these cereal bars. He would load up tins and hand deliver them to all his co-workers and collegues.
My father never meet my son, but i did tell him before he died that I would name my first born after him and so...17 years ago today, my son Corry was born.
No cake baking here, it's "Corry bars" for Corry's birthday celebration. Oh, and a tall glass of milk.
My father's tradition of loading tins with Corry bars and taking them to friends and family continues with my family...This batch of Corry bars is just the first of many to come.
