I was thrilled that someone replied to my post for this recipe, thank you Steve. My family finds this one of their favorites. I usually do not add the walnuts, but this is GREAT!

Well there aren't any calories in these beautiful bars right? Delicious and easy to make. I used homemade caramel sauce and the bars turned out great. As others suggested, I shall reduce the butter by about 1/4 C next time. I did find that I needed to add about 5 minutes more to the baking time. Thanks for the great recipe!
