Caramel Butter-Pecan Bars for a Crowd Recipe

Publisher Photo

Could cashews or almonds be used in place of pecans?

This recipe is wonderful! So good and so quick and easy. Certainly a favorite of the family...never any left. They freeze well too.

My family loved these bars...soooo rich and good. I thought they were a little expensive (pecans alone were $6) but I will make again.
