Nordy Bars

Yesterday I shared with you my fun new project – from your kitchen….to my kitchen.  I have had some yummy recipes come in but I could use some more so please find a favorite recipe to send my way and it just might end up on the blog!!

Like I said in yesterday’s post I love it when my friends share recipes with me – a recipe is the best gift.

Last week while we were at the beach our neighbors came down to join us for the day and my neighbor Sheri brought her Nordy Bars because she remembered how much Logan liked them.  She is such a sweetie.

Back in 2008 I shared Sheri’s recipe for Nordy Bars with you after she brought them to a neighborhood ladies gathering.  I think I ate half the plate that night and of course demanded she give me the recipe, which she did!  They are now a family favorite.  That next holiday when the then college boy was home for the holidays he asked Sheri when she was going to make him some Nordy Bars.  Well – one day before the end of the break Sheri came bearing gifts – Nordy Bars.

Nordy Bars

The name comes from Nordstroms and is a yummy treat they use to serve at the Nordstrom Cafe.  I love a good Copy Cat Recipe and this is one.

Nordy Bars

These bars are yummy, gooey and rich.  Full of chocolate chips, marshmallows and butterscotch chips.  As you melt the butter, butterscotch chips and brown sugar don’t worry if it looks a little strange or the butter separates out.  It will be o.k. – just proceed forward.

Nordy Bars

Be sure to allow the mixture to cool before adding in the chocolate chips and the marshmallows.  Then spread it into a 9 x 13 pan.

They may not be one of the prettiest bar cookies I have ever made but they are DELICIOUS!  And all that deliciousness makes up for their lack of pretty.

    Leigh Anne, do you have any idea why the picture of your recipe item doesn’t show up when I use Zip-List to save the link to your page? I love Zip-List and it is my preferred way to save recipes but it just doesn’t save the right picture from your blog. And the picture is what generally attracts me to a recipe or to come back to a recipe. Any suggestions or thoughts?

      Paula. I stopped adding photos to my recipes because I had people not wanting to have to print a photo with the recipe – didn’t like having to waste all that ink :) I have emailed Ziplist to see if there is a way to make the photo optional.

    These look really good. Nordstrom’s Cafe makes some great items.. Love their Salad dressings especially the Champagne. Thanks for the recipe. Nice to know I don’t have to drive a 100 miles to have a sample like I do to buy the Salad Dressing.

    These are my absolute favorite bars! Once, when I was a teenager, I made them every day (!!!) for 2 weeks straight for my siblings and I. Gone every day! In my house they are called: Disappearing Marshmallow Bars!
