5 Layer Lime Brûlée Bar Cookies for Keepin’ It Kind’s Cookie Swap Party

I’m so pleased to be a part of Kristy’s Cookie Swap Party!  I’ve been a fan of Keepin’ It Kind for about a year and always look forward to Kristy’s recipes.  She has a unique way of bringing serious issues to us without being preachy, self-serving or unkind to those of us who are struggling to do the right thing when it comes to eating and respecting animals.  She’s just a true sweetie!  Thanks Kristy ♥ So I’m sharing a new recipe that combines so many of my favorite dessert flavors; chocolate, almond, caramel, vanilla, citrus just to name a few.

Spicy Candied Nut Brittle

Candied Nuts?  Spice? = YUM I’ve always loved contrasting flavors and textures in food and this snack has it all! The salty, spicy seasonings, the syrupy sweetness of the stevia and maple syrup, the crunch of the caramelized  nuts! I took half of this batch and saved it to break up on top of salads and the other half I pressed into a greased square container to make bars out of for breakfast.  Press down hard on the candied nuts, cover and freeze.  When they get cold, just cut into squares and wrap. Either way you enjoy these spicy gems……….you will enjoy them a lot!
