Fudgey Prune Chip Spice Bars

Dark and mysterious-looking, these bars are so deliciously gooey and fudge-like.  They have got to be one of my favorites!  As a result these are "dangerous" - i.e. a red light food.  Make them if you dare!  Your non low-carbing friends will never believe these bars are low-carb and gluten-free. Yum!
You cannot believe how good prunes taste in this bar, however, keep in mind one cannot eat too many in one day on account of the prune chips.  You don't want a sore tummy!
