To all the dad's out there today, I hope you are having a great day, relaxing with your family and enjoying some time together.
The timing for this recipe couldn't have been more perfect for me. Since it is Father's Day, I try to make the day all about Dad (my hubs in this case) and what he likes. It just so happens that desserts like this are his favorite (just after vanilla ice cream and huckleberry pie mind you).
In fact, the most response I get from my husband to anything I make now is usually, "It needs nuts." Not even joking. I guess since he has been eating what I make for close to 11 years now he has become a bit used to it. He also knows that unless he gives me his honest opinion, even if it hurts, that he will be in trouble with me.
I don't always add nuts to everything just for him, but today is his day, so these Butterscotch Cashew Bars are completely perfect. They were also super easy and fairly quick to make.
The only change I made the recipe today was to use some golden syrup I had on hand. I forgot that I was out of corn syrup and thought it would make a nice substitution, which it did.
