Recipe Comments & Reviews

Delicious!
I have made these over a hundred times, they are sturdy bars that look decadent and rich the minute you lay them out. This is the bar version of a 'Derby Pie' which is a pecan pie with a chocolate bottom but it is ten times better and serves a crowd easier. Definitely use the CHUNK chips, again, it adds a gourmet touch and when you store (I freeze) definitely use wax paper between the layers because they are sticky from that pecan filling. Also, I line my 9 X 13 pans with the non-stick alum foil and spray before I bake, it will make clean up easier and will cut perfect bars for you when you remove from the pan. Make these - you will never hear the end of it!
This is my favorite bar recipe. It's very easy to make and is delicious. I discovered the recipe on the butter container but lost it in a move a few years ago. I've looked for it and finally found it on the website. I'm off to make some!
