stack of 3 Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars

Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars are one of our favorite treats!

We love pecan pie around here (and honestly, what’s not to love?!)!  This easy recipe transforms pecan pie into ooey gooey chocolatey squares that are totally irresistible!  Every person who has tasted these has requested the recipe!

These squares start out with a buttery shortbread crust which is then topped with a decadent chocolate pecan filling!  I make the filling on the stove top but you can also microwave it for about 2 minutes if you prefer.  You want the chocolate just about melted when you remove it from the microwave.

  1. Hi Holly, for the topping, is it melted butter we’re mixing with the other ingredients or are we cutting in cold butter for a crumb like texture?

  2. Hi Holly!! I would love to make this recipe but I can’t find corn syrup where I live. Can it be replaced with something else? Thank you!!

    1. I have only tried this recipe with corn syrup as written so I’m not sure what else you could replace it with.

  3. This recipe for The Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars Recipe looks and sounds delicious. I wanted to put save it on Pintrist but I cannot do it. Can You recommend something, please?
