Caramel Cuts - Punahou

These bars are similar to a blondie, and can be thought of as a caramel version of a brownie, so like a caramel brownie. :). These bars have a lot of butter, and when the melted butter is mixed with the brown sugar, it makes a caramel-e mixture that makes the bars have a hint of caramel flavor. The bars have quite a bit of butter, and so are extremely decadent and heavy. They are also quite chewy and soft, so this isn't a good bar for those who like crispy bars or cookies.

  1. How much is 2 blocks of butter, really, like two sticks?
