Salted Nut Rolls

I'm not sure why these are called Salted Nut Rolls.  They're really a Salted Nut Bar.  A peanut bar to be exact.  In fact, they taste like a PayDay candy bar.  My friend Michaela, over at the An Affair From The Heart Blog, shared this recipe with me many years ago.  It seems to be a regional favorite in Nebraska.  Then I brought the recipe to my area and WOW-ed everyone.  They are just that good.  We made it once for a get together and got so much positive feedback on them, it became our personal joke.  "Make them rave with Salted Nut Rolls."  For some reason I always bake them in the Fall, when football season rolls around, but they are delicious anytime of year.  Make your friends RAVE!  Give 'em a try!
So Yummy!
