Chocolate Chip Pecan Bars
The thing that I love the most about this recipe is that it uses a cake mix, so you don't have to get a ton of ingredients out and measure them all!! If you keep a cake mix on hand, you can whip these up anytime in just a few minutes!
1 cake mix (I use french vanilla or butter pecan)
1/4 cup of butter (melted)
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup of water
1.5 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup of chopped pecans or walnuts
1. Preheat oven to 375. Grease a 13X9 pan
2. Mix all ingredients together until well blended. Spread in pan.
3. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely.
For a fancier look (if you're serving them on a platter or something in a single layer), you can drizzle them with chocolate.
For drizzle: Combine 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and 2 tsp of shortening in a bowl and microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir. Repeat until chocolate is melted. Drizzle over cooled bars.
