Salted Nut Roll Bar

Salted Nut Roll Bars ~ Just like the Candy Bar! via #recipe #bars

Remember that crazy girl in the grocery store I wrote about yesterday? Well she requested I finally post this recipe. She says her husband’s favorite candy bar is the Salted Nut Roll and I guarantee if he likes those he’ll love these bars even more. For the record she’s really not crazy and she’s one of the most amazing chicks I’ve ever met! I’ve been teasing her with this recipe for oh about a month and I just haven’t got around to posting it. Sometimes I have a stash of recipes waiting around for a rainy day when I don’t know what to write about and this one just got tucked away in that stash. Actually it’s a stash for when I lose my mojo in the kitchen and I need a few back up recipes that I can post because nothing has been turning out for several days, maybe even weeks. Yes I have those moments too. Things can look or sound so amazing and get raving reviews from others and then I make them and think what on earth happened? In fact this happened the other night and I literally read that recipe about fifty times trying to figure out what step I missed and messed up. I never did find out what went wrong and the bars and recipe went into the garbage. What can I say our taste buds are all different. In fact you might find this out about one or two of my recipes you try. *Gasp* I know who would have thought! I will try not to take to much offense if I ever hear this! This recipe comes from my aunt and like I said before is amazing, even more amazing than a Nut Roll. The crust is the key ingredient. It’s soft and chewy and buttery and oh so good. I could probably just eat that part of the bar. Enjoy!

    Hi – I was doing a search for Salted Nut Rolls & thought I’d try the cake mix version this year. I’ve been doing the flour version for the crust for years and it always comes out so flakey and falls apart.

    Thanks for sharing. I’m following you now and if you have a newsletter I’ll sign up for that so I can stay in touch.

    Oh, this could be dangerous! I love Nut Rolls…and now I can make them at home?! My hubby is gonna love this!

    • Julie Evink

      It is dangerous to the hips!

  • Pam

    Please help me. When I pour the melted ingredients over the marshmallows, it smears and doesn’t stay layered like your photo. What am I doing wrong? The melted ingredients does not cover every square inch of my marshmallow layer. Thank you!

    • Julie Evink

      How long are you putting the marshmallows back in the oven for? Are you melting them? You should only put them in long enough for them to “puff” up and that only take a few minutes in my experience!

  • Jone Anderson

    Thanks for sharing. I’m bringing these to church for coffee hour 🙂

    • Julie Evink

      Hope everyone enjoyed them!
