Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars (from Dessert Diva)

I love desserts. I mean, seriously...chocolate, nuts, peanut butter, coconut, etc., etc., etc...what's not to love? This dessert is definitely high up on my list of favorites. It has chocolate and pecans and tastes just like pie, but it's all wrapped up in a neat little bar! Yum!

1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature, plus 2 tbsp. melted
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
3 large eggs
3/4 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup sugar
1 package semisweet chocolate chips
2 cups coarsely chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350. Line the bottom and sides of a 9x13 pan with foil.

In a bowl, beat 1/2 cup butter, brown sugar, flour and salt until coarse crumbs form. Pour mixture into prepared pan; press firmly into the bottom.

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

Meanwhile, in the same bowl, mix eggs, corn syrup, sugar and melted butter until well combined. Add chocolate chips and pecans; spread over crust. Bake until set, about 25-30 minutes. Cool completely in pan before lifting out. Cut into 32 bars.
