MY REVIEW

My family and I enjoyed the bars. The only substitution to the recipe that I made was exchanging the cashews for peanuts. My family likes peanuts better; the bars were still a hit. Some family members like theirs in the refrigerator and others liked them at room temperature. Try it both ways and see what you enjoy best!

YUMMY...you have to hid the caramels before they get eating though and you have to go out and buy more to make the recipe (yes this happened at my house!) I used choclate chips though since I was lazy after unwrapping all the caramels.
