Caramel Pecan Praline Bars
A reader sent this delicious looking recipe to me. Looks like a great Valentine's recipe to share.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup Butter, softened
1 cup pecan halves
2/3 cup Butter
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup white chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350°F.
*Combine all crust ingredients except pecans in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until mixture resembles fine crumbs.
*Press onto bottom of ungreased 13x9-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 begins to boil. Boil 1 minute, stirring constantly.
*Pour evenly over pecans and crust.
*Bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until entire caramel layer is bubbly. (DO NOT OVERBAKE.) *Remove from oven.
*Immediately sprinkle with chips; allow to melt slightly (2 to 3 minutes).
*Swirl chips leaving some whole for a marbled effect.
*Cool completely; cut into bars.
TIP: Store at room temperature in loosely covered container.
