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.
