Mmmm… chocolate

June 8, 2008

Ok, so not photography related, but yummy nonetheless.

I’m sharing my recipe for Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars – I’ve got tons of chocolate chips, and tons of pecans, so I’m off to bake some. Now, if you’ve never tried these, then you MUST try them (and don’t come knocking on MY door ’cause I can eat an entire batch, and down a gallon of milk along with it in no time flat!). And just to clarify – I HATE pecan pie, and I LOVE these…

So… cheers to calories, chocolate & fatty goodness!

Crust –
1 1/2 cup Flour
1/2 cup Butter — Softened
1/4 cup Brown Sugar — Firmly Packed
Filling –
3 Eggs
3/4 cup Corn Syrup
3/4 cup Sugar
2 tablespoons Butter — Melted
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup Pecans — Coarsely Chopped
12 ounces Semisweet Chocolate Chips


CRUST: Preheat oven to 350F degrees. In small bowl, mix flour, 1/2 cup butter and brown sugar until crumbly. Press into greased 13×9″ baking pan. Bake 12-15 minutes until lightly browned.

FILLING: In medium bowl with wire whisk, beat eggs, corn syrup, sugar, melted butter and vanilla. Stir in pecans and chocolate. Pour evenly over baked crust. Bake 25-30 minutes until set. Cool; cut in bars.

Eat, drink & be merry!

  1. These do sound super-good. I’m hoping I passed my glucose test so that I can try all these yummy desserts. This is going to the top of my list….if I can afford the pecans! 😉
