Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars

These were absolutely divine! We didn't have enough pecans(remember we were cleaning out the cupboard) and used some walnuts in the mix. YUMMY!

1. Preheat oven to 350. Line bottom and sides of a 9×13 inch baking pan with aluminum foil.

2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat 1 stick room-temp butter, brown sugar, flour,and salt until coarse crumbs form. Pour mixture into prepared pan; press firmly into bottom.

3. Bake until lightly browned, 25-30 minutes. Let cool, 10 minutes.
4. Meanwhile, in same large bowl, mix eggs, corn syrup, granulated sugar, and 2 TBS melted butter until well combined. Add chocolate chips and pecans; spread over crust.
