Nordy Bars are an ooey, gooey dessert that originated in the Nordstrom’s Cafe
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. I had almost forgotten how yummy these bars are!
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.
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.
How to make 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.
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.
