Author Notes

Caramel + Chocolate + Nuts = Triple Threat. No wonder this is my most requested recipe. This slice literally flies off the platter at every party. Occasionally I cut the squares smaller so there is more to go around but that doesn’t seem to make a difference because guests just come back for seconds…. and thirds. The sight of a few measly crumbs remaining on your platter at the end of the party will fill you with pride.
