Okay, this has got to be the easiest recipe ever. It comes from one of my favourite websites called www.smittenkitchen.com The lady who writes this blog lives in a tiny apartment in New York with her husband and little baby. She always manages to get my attention, with her humour and her knock out recipes. This one is a real winner and you will see from the picture, I was only able to photograph the last little piece because the rest of it got scoffed within minutes.
The secret here is to brown the butter until it's quite a nutty brown. This gives the bars a slightly caramelly flavour. The next ingredient will surprise you. A small amount ie, 1/4 of a teaspon of Maldon Sea Salt. These two additions turn what is normally a child's sickly confection into something much much more then the sum of it's parts. The small addition of salt, seems to lift this into another dimension so that it's no longer sickly sweet, but be warned, incredibly addictive.
