This Caramel Pecan Bar Recipe makes a wonderful treat that is a cross between a cookie and a blondie, but better! I love them because they are soft like a cookie, but stand up like a blondie. Made with a just right caramel filling is and chopped pecans, these never last long in the house.
I also love the milk chocolate chips as they propel this to a seriously-addicting level for dessert bars.
You whip up and bake the batter, then top with the chips,
add the pecans
and then top with melted caramels on top.
Then you top it with a little more batter and put the entire pan back in the oven so that the flavors can all come together.
The result is a delightful semi-salted caramel cookie bar with crunchy pecans and sweet milk chocolate.
So good! These caramel bar cookies are great as a dessert, after-school snack or with a cup of coffee or tea. They also make a nice gift idea for the holidays. Be sure to bookmark or pin this recipe!
