Sugar coma! - Nordy Bars

So, you have a recipe that calls for two kinds of chips (butterscotch and chocolate), marshmallows, and walnuts. Nice and healthy, huh? Well, I made this tonight - and although I ate my normal 1/4 of the pan like I do when I make sweets, at least this time I was able to put it back in the fridge without being tempted to eat more. We take our accomplishments where we can.

Given all the sweet things in it, it wasn't hurt-your-teeth sweet, which is definitely good. I think if I made it again, I'd cook it longer, because it was less bar on the bottom than goo. Of course, a good sweet goo is still good.
