In large bowl, beat remaining cake mix, 1/3 cup butter, the vanilla and 1 egg with electric mixer on low speed until crumbly. Press dough in pan. Sprinkle with chocolate chips; press into dough.
Add melted butter and 2 eggs to reserved cake mix. Beat on medium speed until smooth. Stir in pecans. Spread mixture over crust.
Bake 24 to 28 minutes or until center is set. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Sprinkle powdered sugar over top. For bars, cut into 8 rows by 4 rows. Store covered.
If your family prefers, you can substitute cashews for the pecans.
Use a tea strainer to lightly sift the powdered sugar over the bars.
