Summary

These rich gooey bars, to me, taste just like chocolate pecan pie. Most people can’t eat just one of them.

Instructions

  1. 1In a small bowl, combine the flour and brown sugar; cut in butter until crumbly. Press into a greased 13-in. × 9-in. × 2-in. baking pan. Bake at 350 F. for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
  1. 1Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk the eggs, sugar, corn syrup, butter and vanilla until blended. Stir in chocolate chunks and pecans. Pour over crust. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until set. Cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into bars. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
