Great recipe! We made it with semi-sweet chocolate chips and walnuts instead of vanilla chips and pecans. They were a big hit at my wife's office party. They were a bit difficult to cut before being refridgerated, but sliced much easier once they were cool

VERY good. Next time (there will be many next times) I think I'm going to melt the vanilla chips (I used white chocolate chips). They didn't melt at all on the crust! Not a big deal, since they're so good, but just a personal preference.
