Easy Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie Bars 

Pecan Pie is a classic Thanksgiving dessert, but have you ever tried it in a bar form…with a chocolate chip cookie crust? Dorothy Kern’s Easy Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars take a traditional seasonal treat to the next level!

One of the best things about dessert bars is that they are super easy to serve and have a big crust-to-filling ratio, which can never be wrong—especially when that crust is made with Betty Crocker™ Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix!

Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie Bars 

Using Betty’s classic Easy Pecan Pie Bars recipe as her base, Dorothy makes the crust with chocolate chip cookie vs. sugar cookie mix then adds the pecan mixture on top, following the package instructions. This classic flavor combo is a match made in heaven!

Dorothy's recipe goes to show that you can bring a fun twist to a traditional recipe without adding a lot of extra work to your plate! During the busy holiday season, could you ask for anything more? Her Easy Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie Bars are the perfect any-time treat and an easy yet delicious dessert for your upcoming occasions.

Dorothy’s Tips

  • To make mixing the cookie dough easier, soften (but do not melt) the butter before adding it to your cookie mix. Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer will also make mixing easier.
  • Chop your pecans into small pieces so that they evenly coat the top of the bars. This way, there’ll be a pecan in every bite!
