Chocolate Pecan Bars

These are some of my favorite holiday treats! They are so delicious I made a batch and forced myself to freeze half before I ate them all. They are very easy to make and will please anyone who loves chocolate and nuts. Here is the recipe:


1 cup  butter or margarine, softened

2 cups  flour

2 cups  sugar, divided

1/4 tsp.  salt

1-1/2 cups  light corn syrup

2 pkg.  (4 oz. each) BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, divided

4 eggs, beaten

1-1/2 tsp.  vanilla
2-1/2 cups chopped Pecans


HEAT oven to 350ºF.
BEAT butter, flour, 1/2 cup sugar and salt with mixer until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press onto bottom of 15x10x1-inch pan sprayed with cooking spray. Bake 20 min. or until lightly browned.
MEANWHILE, microwave corn syrup and 6 oz. chocolate in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2-1/2 min. or until chocolate is almost melted, stirring after 1-1/2 min.; stir until completely melted. Add remaining sugar, eggs and vanilla; mix well. Stir in nuts.
POUR chocolate mixture over warm crust; spread to evenly cover crust. Bake 35 min. or until filling is firm around edges but still slightly soft in center. Cool completely.
MELT remaining chocolate as directed on package; drizzle over dessert. Let stand until chocolate is firm.
