I made these bars once or twice before, but had forgotten about them until our
family’s 4th of July picnic. Then my niece, Dianne mentioned them, and I haven’t
been able to get them off my mind since!
I changed up the recipe- http://heidiannie.com/2010/07/homemade-salted-nut-bars/
from this one- using almonds and white chocolate rather than the peanut butter morsels.
1/2 white or yellow cake mix (use other half to make a small portion of lemon filled cupcakes .
1/4 cup unsalted melted butter
1 large egg
Mix together and fit into jelly roll pan. Bake at 350F for about 8 minutes or until golden brown.
Drop 3 cups of miniature marshmallows on top of hot base and put back into oven. Turn off heat
and allow the marshmallows to melt on top.
in a large sauce pan, mix together:
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup Karo syrup (corn syrup- clear)
1/3 cup butter
2 tsps vanilla
2 cups white chocolate morsels
and bring them to a slow boil.
Add 2 cups Rice Krispy cereal and stir all together.
Pour this mixture on top of marshmallow layer,
use a real light hand- this can get really sticky, really fast!
Now, sprinkle 2 cups of lightly salted almond slices and press gently with the back of a spoon
to get them to stick into the rice krispy layer.
So- the bottom cake layer is thinner, the peanuts and peanut butter morsels have been replaced
by almonds and white chocolate, they are cooling in the kitchen as I type- AND –
All is right with my world.
See the difference a good recipe can make- especially when it is fitted to your personal tastes?
Do you have any recipes that you have made better?
