Salted Caramel And Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars

Prep
Cook
Serves 12people
Ingredients
Crust
1/2
cup Unsalted Butter, very soft
1
cup Flour
1/4
cup Confectioners’ Sugar
1
tbsp Cornstarch
Salt, optional and to taste
Filling
220
gr Roasted Salted Pecans, halves or pieces
1
cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1/2
cup Unsalted Butter
1
cup Light Brown Sugar
1/3
cup Heavy Cream
1
tbsp Vanilla Extract
1/2
tbsp Salt, or to taste
Directions
1.
Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a baking pan with aluminum foil, spray with cooking spray; set aside. I strongly urge lining the pan with foil for easier cleanup.
2.
Crust – In a large bowl, combine all crust ingredients and using two forks or your hands (I find hands easier), cut butter into dry ingredients until evenly distributed and pea-sized lumps and sandy bits form. The softer the butter is, the quicker and easier it is.
3.
Turn mixture out into prepared pan and pack down firmly with a spatula or hands to create an even, uniform, flat crust layer.
4.
Filling – Evenly sprinkle the pecans.
5.
Evenly sprinkle with the chocolate chips; set pan aside.
6.
In a large, microwave-safe bowl, combine 1/2 cup butter, brown sugar, whipping cream, and heat on high power for 1 minute to melt.
7.
Remove bowl from micro, and whisk until mixture is smooth; it’s okay if butter hasn’t completely melted.
8.
Return bowl to microwave and heat for 1 minute on high power.
9.
Remove bowl from micro, and whisk until mixture is smooth.
10.
Whisk in the vanilla and salt.
11.
Slowly and evenly pour the caramel sauce over the chocolate chips and pecans.
12.
Place pan on a cookie sheet (as insurance against overflow) and bake for about 30 to 32 minutes, or until caramel is bubbling vigorously around edges, with bubbling to a lesser degree in center. Allow bars to cool in pan on a wire rack for at least 3 hours, or overnight (cover with a piece of foil and/or put pan inside large Ziplock), before slicing and serving. Bars will keep airtight at room temperature for up to 1 week, or in the freezer for up to 6 months.
