Pumpkin Heath Caramel Bars (almost like cake)

I promised this recipe a few weeks ago, but I’m just able to post it now.  I found it on Something Swanky’s blog, like the brownies the other week.  I hope you enjoy it!  I shared with many friends, and no one could get enough!

  1. Slowly melt the butter and brown sugar in a small pot, over medium heat.
  2. Stir frequently, and bring the mixture to a boil until it starts to stick to the bottom of the pot and a thick caramel forms.

These bars can be enjoyed as is, or with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce on top.
