Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
Top Layer:
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips (Nestle® Chocolatier recommended)
1/2 cup white chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 F.

Line a 9 x 13-inch baking pan with nonstick foil.

Place rack in the center of the oven.

In a large mixing bowl, beat flour, salt, 1 cup brown sugar, and 1/2 cup butter on medium speed about 2 minutes, scraping sides of the bowl often.

It should be of a graham cracker crumb consistency.

With a spatula, press mixture into the bottom of the prepared baking pan in an even layer. Sprinkle with pecans and set aside.

Top Layer:

Combine 1/2 cup brown sugar and 6 tablespoons butter in a heavy 1-quart saucepan over medium heat.

Stir constantly until it begins to boil, then cook for 1 minute, continuing to stir.

Remove from heat and pour evenly over pecans.

Bake 18 to 20 minutes until bubbly and crust is golden brown. (The longer you bake, the harder they become.)

Remove from oven.

Sprinkle immediately with chocolate chips, then white chocolate chips.

Let rest for 3 minutes to let chocolate soften, then swirl chips with the tip of a sharp knife or toothpick to create a marbled effect.

Cool completely to room temperature.

Cut into bars to serve.

Yield: 36 to 48 cookie bars, depending on cut size
