Fishback's Food Frenzie Friday...Chocolate Pecan Bars

Friday, September 18, 2009


Okay, so this is new to me... Fishback's Food Frenzie Friday! I love cooking and baking, and people are always looking for something new to try (including myself) so I thought I'd start a new blog post every Friday. I love Taste of Home magazine's....here's a new delicious recipe for you to try out of their Fall Baking Edition.


1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
3 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup dark corn syrup
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-3/4 cups semisweet chocolate chunks
1-1/2 cups coarsely chopped pecans
Directions: In a small bowl, combine the flour and brown sugar; cut in butter until crumbly. Press into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk the eggs, sugar, corn syrup, butter and vanilla until blended. Stir in chocolate chunks and pecans. Pour over crust. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until set. Cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into bars. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Yield: about 6 dozen.

I was taking the pictures of my new dessert, and Tessa REALLY wanted a bar, so I didn't stop her:)
