Butter Pecan Turtle Bars
Online submission

Crust:
2 cups flour
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup whole pecan pieces
Caramel Layer:
2/3 cup butter
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup milk chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large mixer bowl combine all crust ingredients except pecans. Beat at medium speed until well mixed and particles are fine. Press on bottom of 9-x13-inch baking pan. Sprinkle pecans evenly over the unbaked crust. For caramel layer: In a 1-quart saucepan combine butter and brown sugar. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until entire surface of mixture begins to boil. Boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Pour evenly over pecans and crust. Bake 18–22 minutes or until entire caramel layer is bubbly. Remove from oven. Immediately sprinkle with chips; allow chips to melt slightly (2–3 minutes). Swirl chips leaving some whole for a marbled effect. Cool completely; cut into bars. Yield: 3 dozen.
