Turtle Cookie Bars


Sunday is my baking day. It always has been. I love spending a lazy afternoon whipping up delicious goodies in my kitchen. When I came across this recipe for Turtle Cookie Bars I knew it would be the perfect addition to my Sunday baking menu. These bars are easy to make and ever so delicious. They are deliciously rich which makes them perfect for a smaller serving and less guilt later. Love them!

Turtle Cookie Bars

Bottom Layer:
2 cups flour
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter- at room temperature
1/2 cup pecan halves

Center Layer:
2/3 cup butter
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

Topping:
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1/4 cup pecans- finely chopped

In a bowl combine flour, sugar and butter. Mix until well combined. Firmly press the mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 9x13 pan. Layer the pecan halves over the crust.

In a medium pan cook the butter and brown sugar until boiling. Cook for 3 additional minutes- stir constantly. Remove from heat and pour evenly over pecans.

Place the pan in a 350 degree oven and cook for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over entire pan. Allow the chips to soften about 1-2 minutes and gently swirl the chocolate over bars. Sprinkle with chopped pecans and let cool for at least 2 hours. Cut into 24 bars. Serve.

1 bar = 6 points (point plus)
