Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars

Jump to recipe

I remember being a kid and riding in the car with my daddy in Mississippi.  The delta.  A place where the land was flat and stretched out before you as far as your eyes could see.  On those trips, there would be an occasional dead armadillo on the side of the road.  The white fluff of cotton at harvest time would cover both sides of the road and sometimes drift in the wind.  And then, there were always the rows upon rows of pecan trees.

I truly love this nut.  It reminds me of Mississippi, my grandma and the south.  I also love a pecan pie, and I believe chocolate makes that even better.

The yummy shortbread style crust!

Here is a recipe which I have created, because I have added parts of different recipes which I love to make these bars.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

I hope you enjoy these yummy treats.  You can also cut them into diamond or triangle shapes to serve at a ladies event which is fun, or cut them into large squares for pure indulgence!
