Raise your hand if you are ready to say goodbye to Summer!Now if your hand is up in the air, that’s okay because you can still make these with the other.

Cashew Butterscotch

They’re super easy and call for only four ingredients. Thanks to my friend KAnn for this recipe, which her family has been making for generations.

These make my mouth water!! I am having problems with chocolate (again-from over dosing I’m sure) . These look like they could be sweet and salty–perfect!

I am NOT ready to say goodbye to summer. It’s too soon to hear about pumpkin lattes and fall open houses. I want more summer!
These sound like a tasty no bake summer treat.

I have both my hands in the air… I guess I can have my friends make these :), which look fantastic by the way. I made something similar a year or two ago, but didn’t think to add nuts to it, they were good, but that would have made them so much better :).

These treats look delicious! Do you think these would be good “mailers”, and do they stay fresh for longer than a day or so out of the fridge? They look like they would make a nice addition to my holiday goody tins if they do. :)

Mine froze well. I’m not sure how they’d hold up in the fridge. As for being mailers, yes! I think they’d be great.
