Just finished making a batch of these and they are so divine I am going to hide them where no one else can get at them but me. I have a hoard of Skor bars that I brought back from the States, and this recipe looked like it was worth breaking into my stash, and it is! My only changes to the recipe were to ground the pecans finely (that's how we like them) and for the coffee portion I used the Taster's Choice Vanilla flavored coffee, and it was intense, and really made these bars sing. Spoongal, these were astounding, thanks so much for the extra kilos I'm going to gain with these ;-)
I made these tonight and they were like sinful turtle brownies with your cup of latte stirred right in! There are 2 key words for everyone to remember about this recipe: NO LEFTOVERS!!!! I used some instant coffee and made it 1 tsp. to each 1/4 cup; did'nt have to wait for it to cool. I used lite condensed milk "as if" that were going to help me save calories!! But it does work great. I didn't use the double boiler with the caramels, I found they melted fine over low heat, while stirring. And yes, the house smells so wonderful while these are baking, there will be NO WAITING till these are cool till you try to get them out of the pan. Have some warm on vanilla ice cream: to die for!
