Recipe by Raquel Grinnell

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 :)


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. When almost cool, cut into 1 1/2" squares. Keep it small as they are very rich!
