This weirdo polenta bar we made a few years ago is summery but we're making it now in celebration of spring. Don't overthink it! For once. Corn caramel! Is sweet and fresh and there's so much corn it looks just like polenta when we're making it, and it has the same creaminess and richness as a soft buttery polenta you'd make to accompany a mushroom ragoût or tomato sauce. 
The top layer is made from white chocolate cashew gianduja (or whatever)—homemade white chocolate, cashews, a little sugar, ground together overnight until supremely smooth and creamy. It's studded with homemade honeycomb candy made with local maple syrup instead of honey. Then the entire bar is enrobed in bittersweet dark chocolate. Online now! 
Happy spring, corn caramel lovers of the world!
