Simple, caramelly-gooey deliciousness!! How can you go wrong with all that brown sugar and butter? Wonderful for Christmas cookie exchanges; they are always the first to go (if there are any left, my kids keep stealing them :)
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup dark brown sugar
- 1⁄2 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup pecan halves
- 3⁄4 cup dark brown sugar
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- In a large bowl, use a mixer set on low to combine first three ingredients: flour, brown sugar and softened butter. Pat into a 9x13 pan, sprinkle with pecans and set aside.
- To prepare the caramel layer, combine brown sugar and butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly and quickly until mixture begins to boil. Allow to boil and foam for one minute, stirring constantly. Pour over crust.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 20-23 minutes or until caramel is bubbly and crust is golden. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Allow chips to melt slightly then swirl into the caramel.
- When almost cool, cut into 1 1/2" squares. Keep it small as they are very rich!
