The remainder of the Thanksgiving leftovers have been consumed, frozen, or made into soup and now the Christmas baking and party season begins! The next couple of weeks I plan to highlight some of my favorite recipes for cookies and party fare. Some foods really do take a long time to prepare to have a good looking presentation and excellent flavor. These bars do not. These bars are a hostess’ friend. They are made of ingredients that are staples in my kitchen, probably yours too.
1 c. flour
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. butter, melted
1 1/2 c. chocolate chips
1/2 c. chopped pecans
Stir together flour, sugar, and butter. Press into the bottom of an 8 x 8-inch pan. Bake at 350 F for 15 minutes or until golden.
Immediately sprinkle chocolate chips over the top and allow to melt. If there are some that don’t melt, put the pan back in the oven for a minute. Spread the chocolate evenly over the top. Sprinkle with pecans. Cool completely before serving.
