These Heath Bit Bars are one of my favorite bars! Sweet & Salty! Very easy to make and ready to serve within 30 minutes.
These Heath Bit Bars are Sinful. Which means they are probably not very healthy. That's ok, you only live once right? I first started baking with Heath Bits when I made my Better Than Sex Poke Cake.
Needless to say, I will be using these delicious Heath Bits as often as I can! The ingredients list chopped pecans but I recently made these bars without pecans for someone that didn't want them. they were still to die for!
🥜 Nut Allergies
WARNING: If you or anyone consuming this recipe has a nut allergy, please take the appropriate precautions as this recipe has nuts listed as a required or optional ingredient.
Oh and don't forget, if you use a different size pan than what I list below, make sure you adjust the cooking time accordingly so the dough completely cooks. Nobody wants to bite into raw dough. Like most recipes like this, the edges will cook much quicker than the center so when checking the dough, check in the middle.
