These were a great sweet and salty treat! I halved the recipe and made in my biscotti pan.
Yummy! If you love cashews and caramel flavor, these are the ticket. They're decadent.
Had cashews and butterscotch chips on hand that I needed to use, and this was a tasty use for them. Be careful, as the edge pieces got very hard - almost to the hard candy point - don't pull your teeth out! Next time I will cut off and discard the edges.
