I have been very rushed lately being pulled in many different directions. Sorry it took me until today to post these.

Salted Cashew Chewy Bars 3

Since my food allergies, I miss chocolate bars. You know all those ones in the stores that we just can’t eat anymore. Even if it wasn’t for the allergies, I just couldn’t get past all of the ingredients that I can’t pronounce and have no idea what they are. I do make and enjoy my Almond Toffee Bites. Sometimes you want some variety!

Those who know me, or read this blog, know that Iย likeย well Love Chocolate ๐Ÿ™‚ I love making and having everyone enjoy these bars. BTW, they are grandchildren approved! I hope that you and your’s enjoy them just as much!

  1. These look so delicious. I am always glad to see that those with allergies can still enjoy sweets. Thanks for linking to the In and Out of the Kitchen party. See you next week.

  2. Hi Sandi! I just found your blog through Whole New Mom’s AFW. These bars look really good. And easy, too. Thanks so much for sharing. Have a happy Thanksgiving!

  3. These squares must come with an addiction alert!
    I made my first batch and while eating my last piece, I was making my second batch. They are so good!

    Thank you!

  4. Going to make maybe this weekend – have everything at home for these! We are doing clean eating and these fit right in! Hubby always has to have something sweet~!

  5. Made these and they are so great! Hubby didn’t care for the salt on them but I do!! Will be making these again – I used slivered almonds on mine instead of cashews.

    • So funny because my hubby didn’t care for the salt on them either… More for us ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad you like them ๐Ÿ™‚
