This is a favorite at our local farmers market! It is delicious, chewy, and filling!

These taste great, but the chocolate was overpowering and took away from the cashew flavor. I would decrease the chocolate by half or so or maybe use milk chocolate chips next time.

I don't usually bake sweets at home. However, 4 times a year, we vacation in the NC mtns and I always make these bars as a special treat for us and any visitors. They are a wonderful and easy indulgence!

These bars are absolutely fabulous! They are very rich so make sure to make the bar size small - you truly should get 36 out of one pan.

This is an incredibly simple and delicious recipe!!! I mixed in some of the cashews and then sprinkled more on top. It is so good it should be named 'sin'!! It definitely is going to be one of our favorites!!
