Crust

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup pecan halves

Combine flour, brown sugar, and butter, beating at medium speed with an electric mixer until the mixture resembles fine crumbs.

Press onto bottom of ungreased 9″x 13″ baking pan. Place pecans evenly over top of crust.


Topping

  • 2/3 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°.

Combine butter and brown sugar in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture begins to boil. Continue stirring and allow mixture to boil for 1 minute. Pour evenly over crust and pecans.

Bake 18-22 minutes, until caramel layer is bubbly. Be sure not to overbake.

Remove from oven. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and allow to melt slightly. Swirl chocolate chips over the crust. Cool completely before cutting into bars.
