Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars? Yes, Please.

Credit this post with getting a jump on your pre-holiday baking ideas, or to WOW! guests that need wowing, with a bar that tastes like pie.

Chocolate Pecan Pie that you eat with your fingers, because that’s the kind of barbarians we are! RAWR!

Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars

Of course, there are folks who love them some pecan pie (I’m not one of them) and then there are folks who will eat pecan pie if you fill it with chocolate (yep, that’s me).

Let’s focus on that second group of pie eaters and satisfying what they crave.

Pie + Chocolate + Toasted Pecans = your new BFFs.

This bar recipe is one of the easiest I have ever found. Make a crust, make a topping, combine the two…viola! PIE-LIKE BARS!

While the bars are perfect on their own, there’s no law that says you can’t put a giant scoop of whatever ice cream you’d like on these badboys, whether hot from the oven or cooled on the dessert table.

NO LAWS! Ain’t livin’ in ‘Merica great!

Ain’t nothing left to do but one thing: Get to bakin’, mah babies!
