Preheat oven to 350°.

Bake for 15 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned.

  • 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 & 1/2 cups salted cashews, coarsely chopped
  • 1 & 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Stir together sugar, corn syrup, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Stir in cashews and chocolate chips.

Spread topping over partially baked crust. Bake until set, about 28-32 minutes.

Cool completely before cutting into bars. Cover and store refrigerated.
