  • 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


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line a 13x9-in. baking pan with parchment, letting ends extend up sides.
  2. 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.
  3. In a small saucepan, combine remaining brown sugar and remaining butter. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil until sugar is dissolved, stirring constantly, about 1 minute. Carefully pour mixture over pecans. Bake until bubbly and edges start to brown, 15-20 minutes.
  4. 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, remove from pan. Cut into squares.
