Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie Bars
A Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie Bars recipe means a wonderful blend of chocolate and pecan in an easy to make and serve bar. Yum. This pecan bars recipe combines the rich flavor of chocolate chips and the very decadent and sweet taste of pecan filling. There is nothing much that is richer than pecan pie filling and here it is all made right from scratch. That means an even more flavorful and indulgent pecan pie bars recipe than if you were using commercial ingredients to pull it together. So try this chocolate chip pecan pie bars recipe on a day when you really want to serve something that is extra special and delicious to your family. You know they will love this treat, and be very happy to oblige you by gobbling down the dessert as quickly as they can (and then asking for seconds, and thirds, and, … well, but you get the picture).
This chocolate chip pecan pie bars recipe is made in two parts, both of them quite easy to make. So you could have your aspiring baker help you to put it together, and you could even allow him or her to attempt to make one part by him or her self. The first part is the crust, which follows standard crust methods. This particular crust is an interesting one because it does not use graham wafers or other wafers or cookies that might give the crust a bit of coarse texture or granular texture. So this crust is quite pasty in the mouth, which only serves to underscore and emphasize the incredible sweetness of this tasty delight. The filling is also incredibly rich, although this version uses white sugar instead of brown sugar. Another sugar, in the form of corn syrup, is also part of this bar recipe. That makes this recipe very rich in sugar. That means you can cut the pieces of the pecan bars quite small, and they will still satisfy anyone’s cravings for something sweet for dessert.
Fortunately, the recipe also includes nuts, and here, pecans. The pecan is a wonderful nut that is both tender to the bite (far more tender than other nuts) and also slightly sweet. The pecan is a great choice for sweet dishes such as this one, and the combination of pecans and chocolate is really fabulous. Even made alone, without the chocolate chips, the pecans and the sugars make a great dessert. Adding the chocolate chips introduces another rich and decadent layer to this classic dessert. This is a surprisingly easy dessert to make, where the sweet ingredients in the second layer perfectly complete the bottom crust. Together, these two layers make a really wonderful desert. Thank you to the Brown Eyed Baker for this beautiful recipe.
