I love baking, so I always try to get dibs on dessert when I go to a potluck. Not only is making desserts loads of fun, but desserts are often also easier to make ahead of time and transport to the party location, since they generally don't have to be kept particularly hot or cold in transport.
These nutty bars are a sweet, delicious, and indulgent dessert that's a big hit at parties, potlucks, and bake sales. They're fun to make, a great way to switch things up from the typical chocolate chip cookies and brownies, and are perfect served at room temperature. They're very rich, so you get a lot of bars out of the batch. Read on for the recipe!
* As you can see, I toasted almonds and pistachios - that's because, in this batch, I did not use hazelnuts and the pistachios I had were unroasted. The goal is that all the nuts should be roasted/toasted, so that they're flavorful and fragrant, and the great thing about this recipe is that you can pretty much use any combination of nuts that you have. I do recommend always trying to have the pistachios in the mix, because they add a pretty pop of color!
