Find several brands at grocery stores. Ingredients 1 cup butter, cut up 6 tbsp butter, cut up 1 cup packed brown sugar 2 teaspoons vanilla 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour 2/3 cup honey 2 tablespoons heavy cream 1 oz salted mixed nuts Directions Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 13x9-inch baking pan with foil, extending foil over edges. For crust, in a large bowl microwave 1 cup of the butter until melted. Stir in ½ cup of the brown sugar, 1 tsp. of the vanilla, and the salt. Stir in flour until combined. Press mixture onto bottom of prepared pan. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned on edges. Using a fork, prick crust on top but not all the way through. (Pricking the crust will help the filling to stick.) Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan combine hot honey, remaining 6 Tbsp. butter, and remaining ½ cup brown sugar. Bring to boiling over medium-high, stirring often. Carefully add cream; return to boiling. Remove from heat. Add remaining 1 tsp. vanilla and the nuts, stirring to coat (mixture will be quite thin). Spread nut mixture over crust. Bake about 20 minutes or until topping is bubbly in center (caramel will still appear quite thin; bars will firm up as they cool). Cool in pan on a wire rack. Use foil to lift uncut bars out of pan; cut into bars.
