Chocolate Pecan Turtle Bars

We're celebrating the beginning of spring soccer & 
       basketball seasons!  It's time for Chocolate 
                     Pecan Turtle Bars!

This recipe is freezer and travel friendly.  If you are shipping these bars it's best to pack them tightly, otherwise they may crumble a bit.

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup & 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup & 2/3 cup butter (at room temperature)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup pecans- chopped
  • Parchment paper to line your pan

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In an electric mixer add: flour, 1 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup butter. Mix until well blended. Place this mixture on the parchment paper.  Place chopped pecans on top.

In a saucepan add: 2/3 cup butter & 1/2 cup brown sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring continuously. Pour caramel sauce on top of pecans.  Top with chocolate chips and bake for 18-22 minutes.

Remove from the oven. Use a spatula to spread the melted chocolate chips to partially cover.  Let cool or place in the fridge.  Once it's completely cooled, cut with a sharp knife and wipe your knife clean with a towel after each cut.  Enjoy!  

         How do you celebrate the beginning of a 
                    new season of sports?
