~ Chocolate Pecan Crumb Bars ~

I want to make sure that you know that this recipe came from another blog....and I am so embarrassed...I cannot remember which blog. :-(   Just wanted to say that these bars are very easy to make and are delish!   If you have a few minutes & the ingredients, go for it!  I'm having some ladies over tomorrow evening for drinks and appetizers and I thought this would be something different for them to try.  Easy to make and easy clean up too!

If you know the origin of the recipe, by all means please let me know so that I may credit the talented blogger.

Chocolate Pecan Crumb Bars

1 c. butter (no substitutes)

2 c. flour

1/2 c. sugar

2 c. chocolate chips, reserve 1/2 c.

1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk

1 tsp. vanilla

1 c. chopped pecans

Beat butter until creamy. Add flour and sugar, beat until crumbly. Press 2 c. (reserve the rest) crumb mixture onto the bottom of a 9×13 inch pan.

Bake at 350° for 10-15 minutes (until edges are golden).

In a small saucepan, warm (on low) 1 1/2 c. chocolate chips and condensed milk until chips are melted. Stir in vanilla and spread over hot crust.

Stir pecans and remaining chocolate chips into the rest of the crumb mixture. Sprinkle over chocolate filling. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes. Cool and cut into bars.

** These are very rich. I highly recommend cutting them in very small bars.
