Salted Peanut Chews Recipe

These bars remind me exactly of my high school days at the baseball fields. I used to love buying Salted Nut Roll candy bars at the concession stand and sharing them with a friend under the hot summer sun. These bars taste exactly like Salted Nut Roll bars and are delicious! They have the perfect combination of salty and sweet and are guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser at your next gathering. Without fail, someone always asks me for the recipe after I’ve taken them somewhere. I guarantee you will be delighted with these!
