Chocolate Cashew Bars

A delicious, satisfying, chocolate cashew bar that holds up for days after you make them! Cut them thick or thin, they are a great lunch-box, or anytime, snack.

Prep Time:15 minutes
Cook time:10 minutes, plus 3 hours refrigeration

Ingredients:

1 cup Butter, softened
1 1/2 cups Graham Cracker Crumbs
2 cups Confectioner’s Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
1 cup Cashew Butter
1 1/2 cups Semisweet Chocolate Chips
1 jar Hershey Chocolate Spread, divided

Directions:

• Beat together the butter, graham cracker crumbs, confectioner’s sugar, vanilla and cashew butter until blended and smooth.
• Pour the mixture into a 9″by9″ square pan lined with parchment paper.
• Refrigerate for 1 hour, or until firm.
• In a double boiler (or metal bowl over simmering water if you don’t have a double boiler), melt the chocolate chips and 1/4 cup of Hershey’s chocolate spread, stirring until smooth.
• Spread over the cashew butter mixture in the pan, and refrigerate for another hour, or until firm.
• Spread the remaining Hershey’s chocolate spread over the chocolate layer, and refrigerate again for another hour (note: I heat up the chocolate spread in that double boiler and it flows smoothly).
• Note: It is easier to cut these when they are not straight from the refrigerator. Let them warm on the counter for a few minutes, however, store the remains in the fridge where they will keep well for up to a week.

These bars came about because I was looking for a recipe to use the new Hershey spread, and couldn’t find anything that looked interesting. So, I tweaked a Nutella recipe quite a bit (hey, it still has graham crackers and vanilla!), and came up with this. Note that you could substitute Nutella for the Hershey spread and get a nuttier tasting bar as opposed to chocolate-y bars.

  1. This sounds great but I don’t have cashew butter. Any idea if peanut butter would also work?

  2. Stephanie K says:

    Oh wow! I NEVER have Cashew butter on hand, but my dad happened to give me a jar two weeks ago! I can not wait to make these! I have to run to the store for powder sugar or else I would be making them right now. Thank you!
