He loves them. There are in his stocking every year (Bit-O-Honeys are in mine). As soon as I saw this recipe on Kitchen Scrapbook I knew I had to make these for him. Thanks for the recipe Kay.
Butter Pecan Turtle Bars
2 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar, packed
½ cup butter, softened
1-cup pecan pieces
Mix the flour, sugar, and butter. This mixture will seem to crumbly and dry when you pat it in the bottom of the pan. In fact I had to go back and re-read Kay's recipe to double check. She confirmed my suspicions about he crumbly batter. It's ok. It will bake up fine. Pat into 9x13 pan. Sprinkle pecan pieces over crust.
2/3-cup butter (I used a stick and about 2 1/2 tablespoons to get the 2/3)
½ cup brown sugar, packed (I used dark brown, I was out of light!)
1-cup milk chocolate chips
In a 1-quart saucepan combine butter and sugar. Heat until this mixture boils (about 1 minute) stirring constantly. Pour over pecan crust. Bake at 350 on center rack for 18 – 22 minutes or until entire surface of caramel is bubbly and crust is lightly browned.
Sprinkle chocolate chips on and allow to melt slightly, swirl as they melt. Cool and cut into squares.
Although this don't taste exactly like the turtles in the box, it's close enough. Delicious is delicious no matter what way you slice it, or in this case, cut it, lol.
