Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars
I love that they are simple to put together, and won’t take all day to make. They’re fancy enough to take to a party, but also perfect for adding to kids’ lunches too. Have I told you how GOOD they are? The pecans get all roasty, toasty and crunchy, the chocolate all melty, and paired with the buttery, shortbread crust, the result is nothing short of fabulous. I love the combination of chocolate and pecans…it’s one of my very favorites.
Best of all, they’re easy to make. In just under an hour, you can have the most delectable dessert come out of your oven, and they are irresistible! My family loves them, and they’re always a hit wherever I take them. They can be casual or even a little bit fancy if you need them to. I like using Ghirardelli milk chocolate chips…the big ones. But you can use semi-sweet or dark–whatever you like best. Or even a mixture of both!
They’re perfect for taking to a party or gathering, packaging up for a gift, or serving in your home.
