Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars

I love pecans and pecan pie anything.  I found several recipes online but decided to go with this one.  I typically like brown sugar in the crust and thought this one would be a winner.  I was right!  The bottom had a little bit of a chewy, caramelized texture.  These bars are fabulous.  Be sure to spray the pan very well!!

1 1/2 cups flour
1 stick butter
1/4 cup brown sugar


3 eggs
3/4 cup corn syrup
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp melted butter
1 tsp vanilla
11.5 oz pkg semi sweet chocolate chunks
1  1/2 cups pecans, coursely chopped

Preheat oven to 350.  Grease a 13 x 9 pan very well.  Beat the flour, butter and brown sugar in a small mixing bowl until crumbly.  Press into the pan and bak for 12 - 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

For filling, beast the eggs, corn syrup, sugar, butter and vanilla with a wire whisk.  Stir in chocolate chunks and pecan pieces.  Pour over the baked crust.  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until set.  Cut into bars when cool.
