These yummy lit­tle cre­ations (dusted with a white pow­der that is, in fact, icing sugar) con­sist of a rich brown, delec­tably chewy exte­rior that encases an oozy fill­ing of lus­cious caramel.

On home turf, I’ve cruised the high­ways and byways in my search for the best but­ter tart. And, most recently, I shuf­fled off to Buf­falo for chicken wings at the Anchor Bar where this hugely pop­u­lar bar snack, says the lore, orig­i­nated.
