I have made these many times and they are always a hit. We think they taste especially good chilled.

These are soooo good. To the person who knocked them, maybe you didnt use some of the ingredients or you used the wrong sized pan, however, you did something wrong. I made these exactly as written and ther are delicious, will make them again and again and FYI There is no relation between me and the baker here.

My opinion, Patricia is just a woman with nothing else to do but bitch.

Sorry I haven't tried yet but I will. To Patricia it's ok to critique but you just went on and on. If you don't like them can't you just say "you didn't like these" and leave it there instead of babbling on and on.

I can't understand all the 5 star reviews as I thought these were slightly better than terrible. The recipe really needs tweeking because the end result is a thick layer of crust with a very thin layer of pecan topping. You would get a similar effect if you spread 1/4 t. of peanut butter over a piece of bread and called that a peanut butter sandwich. Nope, that's mostly just a piece of bread. The filling/topping needs to be doubled at least, but I'm not sure that would really fix this recipe. As it was, I added additional pecans because I knew 1 cup would not be enough for a 13 x 9 pan. However, additional pecans really didn't help because there just wasn't enough gooey topping (these bars are nothing like pecan pie). The bars really didn't look very nice either and were totally ignored at my party. Consequently, most of them were trashed. I definitely won't make these again.

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.
