What's for Dinner? #1: Chunky Pecan Bars

Finally, dessert!!  And a very yummy one I must add...it turned out sooo delicious!  These are half gone already...that's how well we have enjoyed them.  They were quite delicious straight out of the oven...but they are even better now that they've chilled over night in the fridge.  Here we go:

Step 1:  Gather the ingredients.

Here is what I used:


  • 1 & 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
  • 1 stick of butter


  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 3/4 cup dark corn syrup
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 & 3/4 cups semisweet chocolate chunks
  • 1 & 1/2 cups coarsely chopped pecans

Step 2:  Mix the flour and the brown sugar in a bowl.

Step 3:  (I seem to have lost my photos of these next few steps so will combine them)  Cube the stick of butter and cut into the flour & brown sugar mixture.  Press mixture into the bottom of a greased 13 x 9 baking dish.  Bake at 350 F for 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Step 4:  While this is cooking, whisk together the eggs, sugar, corn syrup, 2 Tbsp melted butter & vanilla in a large bowl, until well blended.  Then add the chocolate chunks & pecans.  When the crust is finished baking, pour this mixture over it.

Step 5:  Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until it is set.  It took me longer than 25 minutes...about 35, before it was set...probably because of the altitude where I live.  Cool completely before cutting.  Store in the fridge in an airtight container.  Enjoy!!
