Nutella cake bars

Nutella Cake Bar with marshmallowNutella cake bars are absolutely delicious.  We added them to our cake bar repertoire a few years ago.  This version also has marshmallow fluff added.   When we concoct  in the kitchen ( that is what my son calls it when we make things up)  you never know how it is going to turn out.
