This cashew-caramel combination is reminiscent of a candy bar.

They look like a gooey mess but they are so delicious that people asked me for the recipe. This is easily doubled and baked in a 9x13 pan. Read More

I have made this twice. Because it was so mediocre the first time I thought I had made a mistake. To me it was nothing like a candy bar. It was kind of dry and not gooey. Great idea as far as ingredients but I don't think it is a winner! Read More

If this turned out dry it was over-baked. It is good several compliments. Watch the broiler!!! One minute goes fast! Read More

These taste okay but not very caramelly. The dough for the crust was very wet; could not be "pressed" into the pan. I felt they needed something so I sprinkled chocolate chips on top and returned it to the warm oven to melt. Once melted spread the chocolate around with the back of a spoon. As a whole these turned out more like a cookie bar than a candy bar. Read More

These were so good plus pecans can be subbed for cashews. They keep in fridge for a couple weeks if wrapped. Read More

Oh my goodness! This is so perfect! Of all that I baked this one is the best and easy to make. I did some changes though I used caramel candies instead of brown sugar for the toppings I used walnut instead of cashew and add some vanill. Oh so yummy! Try it Read More

I think it needs another liquid like vanilla extract. I can smell and taste the egg too much and i don't think that's right. It tastes good though. But could be better. Read More
