This easy to make cookie bar combines everyone's favorite - chocolate and caramel.
INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup LAND O LAKES ® Butter, melted
- 3 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 36 pecan halves
- 1/3 cup caramel ice cream topping or caramel apple dip
- 1/3 cup chopped pecans
- 3 tablespoons hot fudge ice cream topping
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine sugar, flour, cocoa and salt in medium bowl. Stir in butter, eggs and vanilla; mix well.
Spread batter into greased 13x9-inch baking pan. Arrange pecan halves evenly on batter (6 rows crosswise and 6 rows down). Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Place caramel topping in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH until hot and bubbly (1 to 2 minutes). Stir chopped pecans into caramel topping. Spread evenly over hot bars.
Place fudge topping in another small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH until heated through (about 1 minute). Drizzle fudge topping over caramel-pecan mixture. Cool completely. Cut into bars.
Refrigerate bars about 1 hour for easier cutting. Serve at room temperature.
