I tried this and it was so good!!!! I substituted regular pancake syrup for the KARO as I do in all recipes that call for KARO and my family and coworkers went nuts. I will definately make this again and again. Super simple and no fail. GREAT RECIPE. I could eat the whole pan by myself. It is better the next day after it sets and all of the flavors mix and mingle.

Kind of reminds me of dump cake. It was a little too sweet for me.

I have made this recipe using both yellow and a chocolate cake mixes. The yellow make a prettier presentation, showing the layers. The chocolate wasn't as pretty, but it tasted good. I didn't have any problem cutting and serving these bars.

This recipe deserves more than 5 stars. I have made it twice and both times it did not last long. This will be on our holiday table this year. Thanks for a great recipe.

This was "to die for." I love pecan pie and usually only make it for Thanksgivng Day. This was easy to make and I had all the ingredients on hand, except I only had 1 cup of karo syrup, but it came out tasting great. I topped it with butter pecan ice cream. Yummy! Even my picky Grandson like it. Thanks Boyz5, it's definately a keeper. Sue.

Excellent!! I followed this perfectly and these are just amazing. So much better than regular pecan pie IMO. If I'm not careful,I'll eat the whole pan by myself. Thanks so much for posting!

This is an excellent recipe, we can't stop eating it. It's so much better than "pecan pie" which I find way too sweet, this is perfect cut into bars.

I chose this recipe for PAC. I really don't know what to say that already hasn't been said. A wonderful recipe that the whole family, especially the hubby, enjoyed. Thanks for sharing one I will be preparing often.

Made this for Thanksgiving and everyone LOVED it! We now have a new holiday tradition that this cake will be a part of our meal every year! Very easy to make too!

Yum Yum. I used 2 cups chopped pecans because we love them. After cooling, I cut these into wonderful 'butter tart like' squares. Just found this recipe in a magazine article too advertising Duncan Hines yellow cake mix and it gave a tip: 'Toast the pecans before using for best flavor. Spread pecans on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 5 to 10 minutes.' Will try that next time. Thanks for posting delicious recipe. Will make it again soon.
