These squares are just like a chocolate filled cookie but easier to make. For a special presentation, drizzle melted white and dark chocolate on top of squares. Use your favourite type of nuts or coconut in place of the pecans. Great for freezing

Excellent square. Delicious fudgy center with top and bottom like a soft oatmeal cookie. I used walnuts instead of pecans. Yummy. The dough was a bit on the sticky side, so I sprayed my hands with cooking spray and pressed it into the pan instead of attempting to spread. As a shortcut, I put the chocolate chips and condensed milk in a glass bowl and microwaved them for 1 minute on high and stirred until smooth - faster and easier than doing it stovetop. The bake time was exactly 30 minutes and they came out with a lovely golden crust. Perfect.
