Toffee Nut Bars

Craig Clark


When I was a kid my Grandma used to make these, Grandma was always in the kitchen, just like her sisters. Family and kids first, on Christmas Eve my sister was talking about them and said she had the recipe, so I figured holidays, family, neighbors, great time to bring back some old memories and I made them. Well they came out so good I thought I better share them with all of you. I love the old memories they brought back and now we have new memories to add to the mix. Great kid pleasier, both young and old alike. Enjoy!
