  • 2 cups flour
  • 1¾ cups demerara sugar (or dark brown sugar), divided
  • 1¼ cups butter, softened, divided
  • 1 Tbsp. half and half cream
  • 1 cup pecan halves
  • 1 cup pecan pieces
  • 2 cups semi sweet or milk chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Mix flour, 1 cup demerara sugar and ½ cup butter together. Press it into a 9x13" pan and bake for 15 min.
  2. Mix together the remaining ¾ cup butter and ¾ cup brown sugar with 1 Tbsp. half and half cream in a small sauce pan. Boil for 1 min.
  3. Sprinkle pecans over the baked crust. Using the pieces and halves fill in nicely without over lapping. Pour the caramel over the crust. Bake for 20min.
  4. Remove from the oven and sprinkle on the chocolate and wait 4 min. and then smooth out. If still not melted you can pop it back into the warm oven for a minute to finish melting. Smooth out the chocolate.
  5. Let set completely and then cut into squares.
