Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars

Tuesday, November 1, 2016
If you're a chocolate and pecan pie lover, this bar cookie will be your new favorite.

The biggest difference in our bars is this buttery delicious crust has a chocolate fudge layer with a homemade gooey center that makes this filling taste like the classic pecan pie but better with the addition of chocolate in the center.

These cookies make a great addition around the Thanksgiving Holiday since they are simple to make and easier to serve.

The best part is these are so simple and much quicker than making a pecan pie.

Everyone will rave about these and you just might have to make a double batch since they fly off the dish here.

Perfect dessert option when you're not fond of baking or making pies.
