The crust of these bars tastes like a sugar cookie, and the filling tastes like pecan pie (with a touch of chocolate!). But the best part is baking a big batch of our Chocolate-Pecan Bars to share with friends.

  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Beat butter, flour and 1/2 cup sugar with mixer until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press onto bottom of 15x10x1-inch pan sprayed with cooking spray. Bake 20 min. or until lightly browned.
  • Meanwhile, chop 6 oz. chocolate; place in medium saucepan. Add corn syrup; cook on low heat 3 to 5 min. or until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Add remaining sugar, eggs and vanilla; mix well. Stir in nuts.
  • Pour chocolate mixture over warm crust; spread to evenly cover crust. Bake 30 min. or until chocolate topping is firm around the edges but still slightly soft in the centre. Cool completely.
  • Melt remaining chocolate as directed on package; drizzle over dessert. Let stand until chocolate is firm before cutting into bars.

Easy Cleanup

Line pan with foil with ends extending over sides; spray with cooking spray, then use as directed. Lift cooled dessert from pan with foil handles before cutting dessert into bars. Not only are the bars easier to cut, but cleanup is also a snap!

    These were terrible, followed directions but were terrible. They also cost a lot to make and looked nothing like the picture. Kraft, you need to redo this one ...what a waste of good money, threw in garbage.

    First, they don't look like the photo. The picture looks as if they chocolate was poured on then the pecans were sprinkled over top - NOT stirred in like the recipe (the photo looks better, if I were to make again, I would sprinkle the pecans on top after baking it for a while). To make it not as sweet, use unsweetened chocolate! After I read reviews, I bought unsweetened as I knew all that sugar plus corn syrup plus semi-sweet would be like everyone said, too sweet. I used a 13x9" pan with foil for easy clean up but I was worried it would spill over like others mentioned so I placed it on a baking sheet - it didn't spill over at all though and better safe than sorry (I hate cleaning ovens). They don't taste bad but they aren't good enough to make again.

    I halved the amount of chocolate and decreased the amount of sugar and it was still super sweet. It was too rich and very messy and I couldn't get my guests to polish off the pan. The recipe needs some more fine tuning.
