Recipe by Sydney Mike

The original of this slightly tweaked recipe was found in the Betty Crocker Special Edition Fall Baking, 2004. Preparation time does not include the hour needed to cool the baked bars.

Delicious! My cashews weren't salted, but I'd like to try them with salted cashews as well, to see what CB is talking about. These were super easy and quick, too! I sprinkled the top with icing sugar, which was a pretty touch. Thanks for posting, Syd!
