Prep: 15 min. Bake: 15 min. + cooling

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar, divided
  • 1 cup plus 3 tablespoons softened butter, divided
  • 1-1/2 cups coarsely chopped pecans
  • 1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. Line a 13x9-in. baking pan with parchment paper, letting ends extend up sides.
Beat flour, 1 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup butter until well blended (mixture will be dry and crumbly). Firmly press into prepared pan. Sprinkle pecans over flour mixture.
In a small saucepan, combine remaining butter and remaining brown sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Stirring constantly, boil until sugar is dissolved, about 1 minute. Carefully pour mixture over pecans. Bake until bubbly and edges start to brown, 15-20 minutes.
Remove from oven. Immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips. Let stand until chocolate begins to melt; spread evenly. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Lifting with parchment paper, remove from pan. Cut into squares. Yield: 4 dozen.

"I made these squares on 9/21/17 and I did 1 change-I chilled the bars once the chocolate was melted and spread over the toffee mixture. The other 2 reviewers have summed up that this recipe is a keeper and I agree! Taste of Home Volunteer Field Editor"

"This recipe covers all of the bases. All yummy things rolled into one. Layers of chocolate and toffee piled on top of a buttery pecan hot crust to melt and mend.

Truly awesome. I made 1/2 of the recipe. Baked in an 8x8 " square pan. Baked for about 23 minutes. And no parchment paper .
Cut and baked perfectly.
I hope to see more reviews on this newly found little gem.

Don't lose out! It's a must try!"
