PECAN CARAMEL BARS

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 60 club crackers
  • 2 (11 oz) bags caramels, melted according to package directions
  • 10 oz Fisher Pecan Halves, chopped
  • 1 (11.5 oz) bag semi-sweet chocolate chips

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Line a 9×13 pan with foil. Butter foil.
  2. Arrange half of the crackers in the bottom of buttered pan in a flat layer.
  3. Pour one-third of the melted caramel over crackers in pan and spread caramel into an even layer. Sprinkle half of pecans on top of caramel and then top pecans with one-third more of the caramel on top.
  4. Top caramel layer with the remaining crackers. Pour remaining caramel on top of crackers and spread caramel into an even layer.
  5. In medium sized microwave safe bowl, microwave chocolate chips uncovered for 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth.
  6. Pour over caramel and spread evenly. Top with remaining pecans.
  7. Let cool until chocolate has hardened. This can take a while at room temperaure, but you can speed the process up by cooling them in the fridge. Allow bars to come back to room termparure before cutting and serving — otherwise the caramel will be too hard.
  8. Cut into bars and serve! These bars can be stored in an airtight container for up to one week.
