Description

As rich and decadent as they sound!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE CRUST:
  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar, Packed
  • ½ cups Butter, Softened
  • 1 cup Pecan Pieces
  • FOR THE CARAMEL LAYER:
  • ⅔ cups Butter
  • ½ cups Brown Sugar, Packed
  • 1 cup Milk Chocolate Chips

Preparation

For the crust:
Mix flour, sugar and butter until combined. Pat into a 9×13 pan evenly. Sprinkle with pecan pieces. Do not bake! Set aside.

For the caramel layer:
In a 1-quart saucepan, combine butter and sugar, stirring until combined. When entire surface boils, let boil for 30-60 seconds, stirring constantly. Pour over unbaked pecan crust.

Bake at 350ºF for 18-22 minutes, or until caramel is bubbly all over, and crust is slightly browned. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over the caramel layer; spread carefully as they melt. Allow to cool before cutting and serving.

I already gave these a top review, though technically I shouldn’t have because I ate some straight out of the oven! I’m only anticipating they’ll get better as I let them cool, and probably refrigerate them too! Thanks for this simple yet super decadent dessert!
