Chocolate Caramel Pecan Bars

Caramel and pecans are a perfect combination if you ask me, and you will love them in this easy to assemble Chocolate Caramel Pecan Bar recipe. The caramel and pecans create a rich, chewy center while the shortbread base melts in your mouth. A perfect layer of milk chocolate tops things off, and they're good to go!

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cold butter, cubed
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
  • 1 (12 oz) jar caramel sauce, warmed
  • 1 (11.5 oz) package milk chocolate chips

In a large bowl, combine flour and brown sugar. Then cut in the butter until crumbly. Press into and ungreased 13'' x 9" baking dish. Top with pecans. Drizzle the caramel sauce evenly over the pecans. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 - 20 minutes or until caramel is bubbly. Place on a wire rack. Sprinkle with chocolate chips. Let stand for 5 minutes. Carefully spread chips over caramel layer. Cool at room temperature for at least 6 hours or until chocolate is set. Cut into bars.
