These chewy toffee pecan bars are part blondie, part cookie bar, and full on ooey-gooey delicious. The buttery pecan flavor is outrageous! Calling all toffee, caramel, butterscotch, blondie, butter pecan dessert lovers out there, this bar delivers it ALL and more. And it’s an easy one bowl recipe ~ wahoo! Make them now and enjoy them all fall. Make them for friends, family, co-workers, and then be sure to add them to your holiday sweets assortment, they’ll fit right in (and probably be the first to go.)
Toffee is a hard candy made by cooking butter and brown sugar to a high heat. These bars have the flavor of toffee, without any bits of candy. If you like you can add toffee chips to the batter, I like Heath brand for that. You can use plain toffee bits, or chocolate toffee in these bars. Add about a cup.
- 1 1/2 cups pecan halves
- 2 cups lightly packed brown sugar (plus a little more for sprinkling.)
- 1 cup unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 1 Tbsp vanilla extract. Alternatively use 2 teaspoons vanilla and 1 teaspoon almond extract.
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 cups all purpose flour
