  1. In a medium saucepan, bring 1/2 cup light brown sugar, 1/3 cup corn syrup, 4 tablespoons unsalted butter and 1 tablespoon grated orange peel to a boil, stirring, over medium-high heat.

Transfer to a greased 9-by-11-inch baking dish and press into an even layer. Refrigerate until firm, about 15 minutes. Cut into 12 bars.
