Caramel Chocolate Walnut Bar Cookies

Posted on Updated on

Caramel Walnut Pecan BarsI was going to a lunch today with some of my favorite people.  It was pot luck.  Thinking about what to bring, I wanted to do something fast and easy.  But it had to be to die for.  After all, my friends deserved that!   Easy decision.  Caramel Chocolate Walnut Bars.  I have making these for years.  I got the recipe from a magazine put out by Land O Lakes butter.  So you know there has to be a lot of butter in it.  LOL!

These chocolate walnut bars are baked with brown sugar, butter, pecans and chocolate to make unbelievably scrumptious bars.  And like I said, super fast and easy!

You start off with a cookie crust of flour, butter, and brown sugar.

Press onto bottom of ungreased 13×9-inch baking pan. Place pecans evenly over unbaked crust.

Combine 2/3 cup butter and 1/2 cup brown sugar in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until entire surface of mixture comes to a boil. Boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Pour evenly over pecans and crust.

Bake 18-22 minutes or until entire caramel layer is bubbly. (Do not overbake.) Remove from oven. Immediately sprinkle with chips; allow to melt slightly. Swirl chips leaving some whole for a marbled effect.

Cool completely; cut into bars.

Enjoy!
