Butterscotch Caramel Cashew Bars
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter room temperature
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 teaspoons salt -
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour -
- 1 1/2 cups butterscotch chips
- 3/4 cup corn syrup -
- 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon water
- 2 cups roasted salted whole cashews
- 1 caramel sauce jar, bottle or home made, as desired
- cooking spray
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a Spray a 13x9 inch pan with cooking spray. Set aside. Using two sheets of parchment paper, line the pan’s width and length, creating a parchment “sling.” Spray the parchment paper with cooking spray. Ideally, using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the butter, brown sugar, and salt for 1 or 2 minutes, until smooth. Reduce speed to low and add the flour. Mix until incorporated. Press dough evenly into your prepared pan. Poke holes in the dough all over with a fork. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until the crust is a golden color. Cool on a wire rack. In a heavy saucepan, over low heat, stir together the butterscotch chips, corn syrup, and water. Stir until the mixture comes to a simmer and the butterscotch chips are melted. Pour over the crust. Sprinkle the cashews over the butterscotch caramel. Bake for 5 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack. After cooling, remove from pan and use a very sharp knife to cut into bars. Serve and enjoy!
