Ingredients

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

2/3 cup sugar

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup pecans, toasted, finely chopped

12 caramels, unwrapped

2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream

2 (1-ounce) squares bittersweet baking chocolate, chopped

1 teaspoon shortening

1 to 2 tablespoons large crystal salt or large crystal sea salt

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F. Line 13x9-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, extending foil over edges. Set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine butter, sugar, egg and vanilla in bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add flour gradually, beating at low speed after each addition. Stir in pecans.

  3. STEP 3

    Press dough evenly, with floured hands, onto bottom of prepared pan. Bake 25-27 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 10 minutes. Carefully remove bars from pan using foil ends; place onto large cutting board. Immediately cut into 36 bars; cut each bar diagonally into triangle shape. Cool completely.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine caramels and whipping cream in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted and smooth. Drizzle caramel mixture over cooled bars.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine chocolate and shortening in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted and smooth. Drizzle chocolate over caramel on bars. Immediately sprinkle with salt.

Tip #1

To toast pecans, place into ungreased shallow baking pan; spread out evenly. Bake at 350°F, 4-6 minutes, stirring once, until lightly browned. Cool completely.
