Butter Pecan Turtle Bars

We are sure enjoying our Florida company!  Here is a teeny sneak peek of who I am so distracted by this week:

Birds Eye View

  What, you can’t see their little sweet faces?

You mean you don’t like my Birds Eye View of the twins?!?!?!  🙂  

  Tell you what, you let me go have fun with them now, and I PROMISE to share pics next week of their stay with us.  

  On to the food:  these Butter Pecan Turtle Bars are as amazing and RICH as they sound.  Easy to make, too!

Butter Pecan Turtle Bars txt


  • * * * * * *
  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar, Packed
  • ½ cups Butter, Softened
  • 1 cup Pecan Pieces
  • * * * * * *
  • ⅔ cups Butter
  • ½ cups Brown Sugar, Packed
  • 1 cup Milk Chocolate Chips

Mix flour, sugar and butter until combined. Pat into a 9×13 pan evenly. Sprinkle with 1 cup pecan pieces. DO NOT BAKE. Set aside.
In a 1 qt. saucepan, combine butter and sugar, stirring until combined. When entire surface boils, time 30-60 seconds, stirring constantly. Pour over unbaked pecan crust.
Bake at 350* for 18-22 minutes, or until caramel is bubbly all over, and crust is slightly browned.
Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over the caramel layer, spread carefully as they melt. Allow to cool before cutting and serving.

Happy Baking!
