Success
If you line the pan with aluminum foil, you can lift out the bars for easy cutting and cleanup.
Variation
Any salted nuts, whether one variety at a time (peanuts, almonds, macadamia nuts) or mixed, are can’t-miss delicious.
Time Saver
Using the microwave to melt the chocolate chips with the corn syrup and butter keeps you from standing at the stove. Use a 4-cup glass measuring cup or microwavable bowl. Microwave uncovered on Medium (50%) for 4 to 5 minutes, stirring now and then, until melted.
