Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars

Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars are great for when you aren’t in the mood to make pie crust from scratch. Chewy and chocolaty. It is hard to go wrong when you are dealing with pecans and chocolate.

Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars
Makes one 9″ x 13″ pan, about 32 bars


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (Original recipe calls for 2 cups)
  • 2 cups pecans, coarsely chopped

1. Preheat oven to 350. Line bottom and sides of a 9Γ—13 inch baking pan with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray. Alternatively, use parchment paper to line your pan. Be sure if there are any areas not covered by the parchment that you lightly spray with non stick spray.

2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat 1 stick room-temp butter, brown sugar, flour,and salt until coarse crumbs form. Pour mixture into prepared pan; press firmly into bottom.

3. Bake until lightly browned, 25-30 minutes. Let cool, 10 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, in same large bowl, mix eggs, corn syrup, granulated sugar, and 2 TBS melted butter until well combined. Add chocolate chips and pecans; spread over crust.

5. Bake until set, 25-30 minutes. Cool completely in pan before lifting out (use foil to lift). Cut into 32 bars. (I cut them into 16 bars)

  20. I live near Louisville, KY, home of the branded Derby Pie. I prefer homemade recipes to the official manufactured ones, which are too dry. These seem to be a bar version of that pie. Can't wait to try it! Gotta love food.com for great recipes.

  21. Hi there- found you through Someday Craft's hop and am a new follower. These look so good! I'm not sure if I can find lgiht corn syrup and the brown sugar here is different thatn int he US….I hope you have time to follow my life in South Africa by http://withoutcomplexities.blogspot.com

    Have a great week!

  22. Lovely Light – I haven't tried this before but I read that you can try substiting honey for the corn syrup. As for the brown sugar, if you have access to molasses you can make your own brown sugar. I have done this many times. You start with about a cup of sugar and add about a tablespoon of molasses, then stir it up until it is totally combined. You can add a little bit more molasses to make it dark brown sugar. I hope that helps πŸ™‚

  23. This looks delicious and right up my alley. I've been totally distraught lately, though, over the rising costs of pecans. I've read it's due to increased demand from the Chinese. I suppose it's nice that there's *something* they're buying from us instead of vice versa, but these price hikes are killer!

  24. These were DELICIOUS!!! This is such an amazing recipe. I made these as a thank you gift for a coworker after finding them on your site. The recipe was super easy, think next time I might do 1.5 cups of chocolate chips.

  25. I work for Bass Pecan Company and every year they have a recipe contest where you can win $1000. You should check it out!! If you like baking with pecans this is perfect for you Bass Recipe Blog

  26. These are as great as they look. Do think I should have sprayed the foil first because they stuck and weren't so pretty. Thanks, will make these again.:)

  27. They’re Wasn’t Any Directions To Get The Aluminum Foil OFF Everything Was Cool AND It Fell Apart A Real Mess Taking It Off I Eventually Scooped Remains of This VERY EXPENSIVE Baked Bar’s Put In The Refrigerator And That’s It Disappointed 😞

    1. I’m so sorry about that Victoria. The recipe should have had instructions to either spray the tinfoil or use parchment paper. I will update it. I understand how frustrating it is to not have a recipe turn out (I had two new recipes I made today actually that were total duds). My apologies. If the bars won’t hold together, they might be good on top of vanilla ice cream? Perhaps warm them in the microwave for a few seconds since you set them in the fridge.
