  • 1 cup pecan halves
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (milk, bittersweet or dark)

Toffee Topping Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup lightly-packed brown sugar

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350°F.

Press mixture onto bottom of ungreased 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Sprinkle pecans over crust. Prepare toffee topping (instructions below); drizzle evenly over pecans and crust.
  3. Bake 20 to 22 minutes or until topping is bubbly and golden; remove from oven. Immediately sprinkle milk chocolate chips evenly over top; press gently onto surface. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars. About 36 bars.

Toffee Topping:

  1. Combine 2/3 cup butter and 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar in small saucepan; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil. Continue boiling, stirring constantly, 30 seconds. Use immediately.
