Butter Cashew Bars

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Manami

Your Guide to Busy Cooks, Linda Larsen. They sound so great with salted cashews(yum!)and the combination of both chocolate chips & butterscotch chips and cake mix, to boot. Cool for about 35-40 minutes. Updated; 10/06/06 -- as a reviewer mentioned -- press the nuts into batter so they won't fall off after they are baked.

Great! I used a butter pecan cake mix. Everyone loved them. The nuts fall off the baked bars, so I try to press them in to the batter before baking.
