Salted Caramel Nut Bars

The combination of salty and sweet is fantastic in this recipe.  A great combination of flavors and very easy to make.  After a wonderful meal, many times just one small sweet is all you need to finish a meal.  I like to serve small bites for dessert and these are perfect.  These would pair great with a Tawny Port after dinner.

After making this recipe for my photo shoot, I sent the remaining bars to work with my husband to share.  Reviews were outstanding.
