Salty-Sweet Caramel Nut Bars - by Summer
I was excited to try these. I planned to make them Sunday afternoon, but it ended up that I couldn't get to them until the evening. After reading through the recipe when I was starting to make them, I realized that they would have to sit out for 2 hours and then chill for 2 more hours! The chilling time mentioned at the top of the recipe was a little misleading (it says 2 hours for chilling time). But I still decided to make them.
My husband was disappointed that we couldn't cut into them right after they came out of the oven. I ended up letting them cool for about an hour and stuck them in the fridge for about 30 minutes, and then we cut into them. They tasted pretty good. I think I could actually taste the honey in the filling (I'm not a big honey fan). I stuck the bars back in the fridge over night and then yesterday chopped them up and sent them to work with my husband (hey - we still have Girl Scout Cookies). I would definitely try making this recipe again. It's pretty easy, but I think I would try it with regular brown sugar, not the dark and maybe without the honey.
