“I got this recipe from my mother, and it’s now part of my yearly Christmas baking,” writes Denise Moore from Nepean, Ontario. “For variety, I sometimes form the mixture into balls with chocolate caps. One batch is never enough!”
This recipe was given to me nearly 50 years ago, at a company picnic, and it's our family's favorite dessert. Now my grandchildren bake it for their families. When each of our three sons got serious about a girl, sure enough, I'd get a call from a young lady requesting "his favorite dish". I always gave the girls this recipe.
Caramels, cashews and chocolate chunks make any gray day something special in this recipe from Amber Kieffer of Aurora, Colorado. Let the kids unwrap all those caramels, counting as they go, to see who unwraps the most.
Made in the microwave, these sweet and chewy bars can be stirred by very quickly. Loaded with caramel, chocolate, peanuts and peanut butter, they remind some folks of a candy bar. Kids of all ages love them. —Charlene Bennett
