I got a request from a follower on my Facebook Page for a recipe for caramel bars. But not just any caramel bars, she was asking for something much more specific. She wanted the one from Max’s Restaurant.

I tried some recipes online but in the end, I came up with my own. How bad though that I cannot make the actual comparison because, of course, we do not have Max’s in Germany. Instead, I just have to compare it to a memory of those delicious caramel bars.

As you can see from the photos, my cashew caramel bars were a bit crumbly as compared to Max’s. But this could be blamed for my lack of patience. I did another batch earlier that has a finer texture and cuts perfectly. The difference is that those batch were chilled in the freezer for some minutes before cutting and these ones were not. As these caramel bars are chewy, I would recommend doing this step before cutting to get a nice clean cut.  

I applied the same procedure that I usually use to make my Chocolate Cashew Toffee Bars because I like its chewy texture and the caramel top finish it produces.
