1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened

1 cup pecan halves

2/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

Chocolate

1 cup real semi-sweet chocolate chips

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine all crust ingredients except pecans in bowl. Beat at medium speed until mixture resembles fine crumbs.

  3. STEP 3

    Press onto bottom of ungreased 13x9-inch baking pan. Place pecans evenly over unbaked crust.

  4. STEP 4

    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.

  5. STEP 5

    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.

I just made this recipe. It came on the butter container. Anyhow, it is delicious and easy. I did double the caramel because it didn't seem to cover the whole thing. I put it in the refrigerator for an hour and it was easy to cut. I highly recommend it!
