Gooey Caramel Butterscotch Cashew Bars


These are ooey gooey, seriously delicious, candy like bars. This gem of a recipe is very sweet and rich. It works well to cut the bars into small pieces because of this. If you don’t like cashews feel free to substitute any other nut or even mixed nits. I love that this recipe starts with a little help from a bag of sugar cookie mix so it’s a snap to put together. With as many cookies as I make during the Christmas season, I love recipes like this that go together so quickly, and still are incredibly yummy. No one needs to know that you didn’t slave over these. It’ll be our little secret! 🙂
