I'm pretty sure these would freeze well. These are not too sweet and I think they are very impressive. I got the recipe from Goin' Coastal here in 2004. That's her notes at the end. I have always used salted peanuts. I cut them into diamond shapes and put each bar in a cupcake paper so they don't stick together and are easy to pick up.
SALTED NUT BARS
Heat oven to 350
Blend the following ingredients:
3 cups flour
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 cup butter or margarine, melted
Press into an ungreased 15 X 10 pan. Bake 10 - 12 minutes.
Sprinkle 3 cups of mixed nuts or salted peanuts over partially baked crust.
In small saucepan combine:
1/2 cup corn syrup
2 Tbsp margarine
1 Tbsp water
6 oz. butterscotch chips
Bring to a boil and boil 2 minutes, stirring constantly. (don't overboil, a little less is better than over doing it). Pour cooked mixture over nuts. Bake 10 - 12 minutes.
I find these are easier to cut if I line the pan in aluminum foil. I can lift them out of the pan whole, and put the on my cutting board to cut with a long knife. These are great. I hve never made them with peanuts. I always use the deluxe nuts - without any peanuts at all.
