Chocolate and Butterscotch Mixed Nut Bars – Sweet and Salty, Kinda Like Us

Chocolate and Butterscotch Mixed Nut Bars

We’re savory gentlemen. We rarely make dessert, but when we do, we get serious.

Peanut butter is the best. It makes us happy. Sometimes, we eat it by the spoonful. Recently, when our other asked us to make dessert, we said, “On one condition; it’s got to have peanut butter. A lot of peanut butter.”

After much research and contemplation, we decided to make peanut butter bars. We can’t leave a good thing well enough alone, so we tossed in walnuts, almonds and Macadamia nuts. If we had more nut varieties, we’d have thrown in those too. And, though chocolate is good, chocolate mixed with butterscotch is far superior.

The result? Crunchy. Satisfying. Decadent. Tastes like a fancy-pants peanut butter cup.
