You can’t win them all. Most recipes start out with the best intentions. I say most, because there are quite a few recipes with green peppers and they don’t stand a chance. You could say this recipe turned out to a something only a mother could love, and I loved it. Too much. What it lacked for in the looks department, it more than made up for it in personality.
Here is a quick dessert after dinner during the week or something to take to a bake sale. In fact, I found the recipe in the “Taste of Home” cookbook “Bake Sale Recipe” cards. Chewy Caramel Bars has 5 ingredients. That’s it! Five! Gabriel gave me a hand in the kitchen practicing his cutting and his counting. The recipe calls for 36 Rolos, I think we had 35 by the time he was done. The bars feed a crowd and smell absolutely delicious baking.
If you would like to make your bars a little bit more presentable, I would suggest spreading the top layer of batter over the Rolo candies. The recipe said to drop the batter in tablespoons. I did that and the batter didn’t spread like it should have. Ugly, but absolutely delicious! Give these a try and let me know what you think!
