My heart wants to write a long blog post about the interesting day we had. It would be about 5 pages long and I would surely loose all my friends!  I think it would be best to just post this recipe!  Believe me you will thank me!!

It was my turn to fix a dessert dish for our Reformers Unanimous Meeting. Chocolate Chip-Pecan Pie Bars seemed like a perfect choice, for a dessert to go with some good strong coffee. One bite of these delicious treats sent everyone back for more. Success! Enjoy!

Chocolate Chip-Pecan Pie Bars
1 1/2 cups flour
3 tbs.’s brown sugar
1 stick butter
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 tbs.’s melted butter
1/4 tsp.salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Note: I used pecan halves, but I think chopped would have work better.

Combine flour and 3 tbs.’s brown sugar in medium bowl. Cut in the stick of butter, until crumbly. Press into a buttered 8×11 inch baking pan. Bake in a preheated , 350 degree oven for 15 minutes.

In large bowl, combine the eggs, corn syrup, 1/2 cup brown sugar, pecans, 2 tbs.’s butter, vanilla, salt, and chocolate chips and mix well. Pour over baked crust and bake for 20 to 25 more minutes. Cool completely and cut into bars.

And if you really want to kick up the decadence level a notch, you could drizzle these with Chocolate Amaretto Sauce! (Since we don’t cook with anything that has alcohol in it, I substituted the Amaretto with Almond.)

Chocolate Amaretto Sauce
4 (1 oz.) squares semisweet chocolate
1 tbs. butter
6 tbs.’s whipping cream
4 tbs.’s Amaretto

Combine first three ingredients in saucepan and stir and cook over low heat, until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and stir in Amaretto. They went really fast!
