Gooey Mixed Nut Bars

Rocky Road Bars My husband loves eating. He loves my cooking. He loves sitting down at the table and having his meal just show up.

After being a bachelor for a few years, he is not a picky eater and has never complained about what I put down in front of him.

But he’s also never requested anything. So when he actually clipped a recipe out of a newspaper, I paid attention.

And I made it for him.

Seems this man of mine has really good taste! These are amazing! I took them to a church event and come home with just one tiny bar. (Which would have been eaten as well, but I hid it so I could take a picture of it – and yes, my husband got to eat it after the picture!)

Gooey Mixed Nut Bars

1 – 1/2 cup flour
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup and 1 tablespoon chilled margarine
1 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 can (12 oz.) salted mixed nuts

Combine the flour sugar and salt. Cut in 1/2 cup butter until coarse crumbs. Press evenly into an ungreased 11″ x 7″ pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes until the edges are golden brown.

In a 2 quart saucepan, combine one tablespoon butter, the butterscotch chips and the corn syrup. Cook until melted. Stir in the nuts.

Spread mixture evenly over the crust.  Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the edges are bubbly.

Cool completely before cutting.
