Mixed Nut Bars



Once in a while, as I pull them out, dust them off and use them I will post recipes that I have found to be real crowd pleasers. Last night I went to an event through an area MOMS club that I joined this year. I am very quiet around people I don't know very well, but I just need to get to warm up to them and I will be right in there. Last night was a good opportunity (without our kids) to get to know some of the ladies a little more. The highlight of the night was to find out that one of the members and I grew up on the SAME STREET and graduated just a year apart from the same high school. Though I must admit, I am very sad that I didn't know here then. Our town and our HS was/is huge and it was/is hard to get to know everyone!

Anyway, for the gathering I made MIXED NUT BARS which my mom originally found in a "Taste of Living" recipe magazine. Here is the recipe:

MIXED NUT BARS
-Bobbi Brown, Waupaca, Wisconsin

1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cups packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons cold butter or margarine, divided
1 can (11-1/2 ounces) mixed nuts
1 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup light corn syrup

In a bowl, combine flour, sugar and salt. Cut in 1/2 cup of butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press into a greased 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with nuts. Melt butterscotch chips. Add corn syrup and remaining butter; mix well. Pour over nuts. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool. Yield: about 3-1/2 dozen







My next recipe will probably be for "Chocolate Surprise". The next cooking club through the MOMS club that I will be able to attend in August will be doing "desserts" (or so I hear!)
