Nutty Chocolate Caramel Bars

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by peachez

Found this gem on a package of walnuts. It's become a favourite here at our house. I cut them into bite size pieces just so I can have a few to savour and not feel any pangs of guilt.

This is an excellent bar recipe. I followed the directions exactly as written. The only trouble I had was that after they were cut, the bottom crust didn't always stay "attached". Perhaps I baked the crust too long or should have "pressed" the chocolate chips and nuts into the crust. Despite that, they turned out to be a tasty little treat that I will make again. Thanks for a great recipe!!!!
