Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars

It's officially fall and that means it's time to preheat that oven! This is the time of year I start going into baking mode and I'm especially anxious to get in the kitchen. One treat I recently tried were these Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars made by a friend. I liked them so much, I made them myself (prior to my gluten free lifestyle.) They came out delicious and I plan on making these again for the holidays. These bars are a chocolatey spin on traditional pecan bars... yum! Although I've recently found out I have a gluten sensitivity, it's not going to stop me from baking up goodies in the kitchen. In fact, I've been doing quite a bit of research and talking to some folks about gluten free baking. I've got a whole pantry of various flours and blends I look forward to play with so stay tuned! The recipe below is one you can adapt for gluten free baking. If you have an all purpose flour blend you use (either homemade or store bought), you can substitute it 1:1 for the all purpose flour called for in the recipe.
