Contest-Winning Pecan Caramel Bars Recipe

My co-workers request these sweet bars all the time, so I make sure to take some for our group lunches and at Christmastime. The butterscotch chips make them different from most pecan bars. They’re a great way to feature our Georgia pecans, and we call them irresistible!

I have made pecan bars from many different recipes, and this is by far the best. Every time I make them, someone asks for the recipe. The butterscotch chips is what does it!
