Reviews forCinnamon Pecan Bars
"This is one of the easiest recipe I've ever made. My boys really over enjoyed. Like others mentioned, it cooks faster than listed."
"Oh my gosh!!! This recipe is so easy, and tastes great. I agree with other reviews, a big scoop of vanilla ice cream and a caramel drizzle would make a decadent dessert for sure. My husband loved them, and he doesn't like sweets, so you know they were a hit. I have since shared this recipe with several friends and made a batch for the guys at work, and took some to a school honors banquet. A must try, and I am guessing that once you try them, the combinations are endless with swapouts on the flavor of the cake mix and chips."
"Made these for a recent potluck and they were very tasty. One friend who tried them said all they could use to improve them was a big scoop of ice cream on top and a drizzle of warm caramel syrup!"
"These were super simple to make and very good. As others mentioned they were done a little sooner than the recommended time. I had some leftover cream cheese frosting from a carrot cake I had made, so we tried the bars with the frosting, with powdered sugar and plain and they were simply delicious every way."
"Thank you fellow reviewers for sharing what you'd done with this recipe! I did not have cinnamon chips or butter pecan cake mix! I used peanut butter chips and a butter cake mix. The brown sugar I had on hand was light brown. I baked just 20 minutes! delowenstein, Taste of Home Volunteer Field Editor."
"Very easy and a nice slightly sweet bar. I baked mine for the recommended time, and the edges were a little dry, otherwise very good"
"These bars are beyond awesome. They are so easy to prepare, it takes longer to get the ingredients out than to make them. I did use Splenda brown sugar blend but made no other changes to the recipe. I am already planing on taking them for refreshments. Be careful, you won't be able to stop eating them. I highly recommend this recipe.Volunteer Field Editor"
"The texture is great. Nice and chewy. Seems like it's missing something so next time I think I would add a handful of chocolate chips. easy to prepare but a thick batter. I needed to press it into the pan. Love the cinnamon flavor but unfortunately I couldn't find cinnamon chips in April. Luckily, I had some in my baking stash that I used. They could possibly only be available during the holidays which is when I bought mine. They are Hershey's brand. I did not have any trouble finding a butter pecan cake mix."
