Chocolate & Caramel Bars

Tuesday, October 9, 2012
These very easy and yummy treats will gain popularity in your house in no time. And with the holiday season coming up soon, they make the perfect sweets to add in your cookie tin, either as a gift or simply to keep all to yourself! Makes about 36 squares. 

2 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 c. butter, softened
1 c. pecan halves
2/3 c. butter
1/2 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • Heat oven to 350°F. 
  • Combine flour, one cup of brown sugar and half cup of butter in large bowl. 
  • Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed and particles are fine (2 to 3 min). 
  • Press onto bottom of ungreased 13"x9" baking pan. 
  • Sprinkle pecans evenly over unbaked crust. 
  • In 1-quart saucepan, combine 2/3 cup of butter and 1/2 cup of brown sugar. 
  • Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a full boil. Boil, stirring constantly, for a minute or two. 
  • Pour evenly over pecans and crust. 
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes or until entire caramel layer is bubbly (be careful not to over bake). Remove from oven. 
  • Immediately sprinkle with chips; allow to melt slightly (2 to 3 minutes). Swirl chips leaving some whole for a marbled effect. 
  • Cool completely before cutting into bars.
