A buttery crust holds a rich topping enhanced with pecans and chocolate-caramel chips.

Ingredients

Crust

3/4
cup butter or margarine, softened
1/3
cup packed brown sugar
1
egg
2
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour

Filling

1
cup butter or margarine
3/4
cup packed brown sugar
1/4
cup light corn syrup
2
cups coarsely chopped pecans
1
cup swirled milk chocolate and caramel chips (from 10-oz bag)

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Grease bottom and sides of 15x10x1-inch pan with shortening or cooking spray (do not use dark pan).
  • 2 In large bowl, beat 3/4 cup butter and 1/3 cup brown sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add egg; beat until well blended. On low speed, beat in flour until dough begins to form. Press dough in pan.
  • 3 Bake 12 to 17 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan, heat 1 cup butter, 3/4 cup brown sugar and the corn syrup to boiling over medium heat, stirring frequently. Boil 2 minutes without stirring.
  • 4 Quickly stir pecans into corn syrup mixture; spread over partially baked crust. Bake 20 to 23 minutes or until filling is golden brown and bubbly.
  • 5 Immediately sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over hot bars. Let stand 5 minutes to soften. With rubber spatula, gently swirl melted chips over bars. Cool completely, about 1 hour. For bars, cut into 24 squares (6 rows by 4 rows), then cut each square in half to make triangles. Store in refrigerator.

Expert Tips

Try using raspberry-flavored chocolate chips instead of the swirled chips.

Coarsely chopped walnuts can be used instead of the pecans.
