1 1/2 cups
1 1/2 cups
packed brown sugar
milk chocolate chips
These are one of my favorite bars! I do the topping a little differently though. When I make them I double the butter and sugar mixture for the topping. Another reviewer said there wasn't enough to cover the bars but this solves the problem and its the best part of the bars anyway.
I recently tried some of these bars that someone else made from a different recipe. Since I didn't have that one, I checked out allrecipes and found this one. The two had similar ingredients, but came out nothing alike. These are very greasy, and not chewy like the ones I'd had. Next time I'll reduce the amount of butter...but I will be trying again.
I give this recipe a 5 star rating with the revisions I made. I took others advice and upped the flour to 2 cups and doubled the brown sugar/butter layer. I chopped up my pecan halves a bit and instead of 1 cup milk chocolate chips on top I did 1 cup semi sweet and 1 cup butterscotch swirled. HEAVEN! Oh my good ness these are so good, the butterscotch adds so much! I topped with the chips and put back on the oven to melt them completely so I could swirl them together. YUM!!!!!!!!
This is almost the exact same recipe my mother handed down to me (and it is always a crowd pleaser). Her quanties on some ingredients are a little different:
2 cu. Flour
1½ cu. Pecan halves
1½ cu. milk chocolate chips
Since some reviews think the posted version comes out a little greasy, the extra half cu. of flour may help to absorb that. And you can't go wrong with extra pecans and chocolate!
I followed the others suggestions and used 2 c, flour and used 2 c. chocolate chips and slso lined the pan with foil. After cooling, I cut the bars into 1"x1" pieces. Making them bite size, they were neat & easy to eat. You could have several and not feel so guilty.
These are great but make sure to use 2 c flour, 1 1/2-2 c pecans, and 2 c chocolate chips.
These are awesome! A local deli/caterer sells bars just like these, and I am so glad to have the recipe at last. I have a large family so double the recipe and cook it in a jelly roll pan. The bars are more of a toffee crunch (which is what I was looking for) so I don't think they are meant to be chewy. They turn out to be a rich, buttery, shortbread-type cookie bar topped with a crunchy praline pecan layer. MMMMMMmmmmm! Thanks for the recipe.
I am giving this recipe 4 stars based on how it is currently written. It is almost identical to the other turtle bars recipe on this site. I increased the flour to 2 cups total, and added 1 tsp vanilla extract to the caramel mixture. I took these to a church potluck and they disappeared! Got lots of compliments on them. Would rate this one 5+ stars with the above changes. :o)
