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.
