"These were delicious! The toffee chips add another layer of flavor. The crust was easy, it's slightly sweet and buttery. The filing was easy too. I will definitely make these bars again. I think I'm done making pecan pie."

"QUESTION: Are the chips supposed to be soft like chocolate chips? The only kind of toffee flavored bits at Krogers where I shop are made by Heath, are crunchy and come in an 8 ounce bag. I know I will love these, which is why I gave them 5 stars....if I ever find out what product I am supposed to use."

"I love pecan pie, but I love these even more because they are so amazingly simple to make! I made them for a party and they were a big hit. Unfortunately, I didn't have any to bring home to the family afterwards. I will definitely make them again!"

"I will never make another pecan pie. These bars a great! Everyone loved them at Thanksgiving. Anytime I'm baking with nuts, I always roast them in the oven for a few minutes first and it makes them so yummy!"
