Chocolate Caramel Nut Bars

It's after Christmas and looking at my leftover ingredients and decided to make this paleo dessert!  I am enjoying more and more of these desserts lately and so is my family.  i am not big on desserts (which includes chocolate) but having a little bite with my espresso seems to be a pretty nice way to end my day!

I hope you enjoy this dessert.  

Just remember when making the caramel - DO NOT walk away and take a phone call or let the dog out!  Stay close with your wooden spoon.
