    German Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars

    Source of Recipe

    From "Southern Living: Recipe Revival"

    List of Ingredients

    • 1 cups all-purpose flour
    • cup powdered sugar
    • cup cold butter, cubed
    • cup unsweetened cocoa
    • 1 cups semisweet chocolate morsels
    • cup firmly packed brown sugar
    • cup light corn syrup
    • cup butter, melted
    • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
    • 1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
    • 3 cups toasted pecan halves and pieces


    1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.

    2. Line the bottom and sides of a 13 x 9-inch pan with heavy-duty aluminum foil, allowing 2 to 3 inches to extend over the sides. Lightly grease the foil.

    3. Pulse the flour and next three ingredients in a food processor 5 or 6 times or until the mixture is crumbly. Press the mixture on the bottom and inch up the sides of the prepared pan.

    4. Bake the crust at 350 for 15 minutes.
      Remove from the oven, and sprinkle the chocolate morsels over the crust. Cool completely on a wire rack (about 30 minutes).

    5. Whisk together the brown sugar and next three ingredients until smooth. Stir in the coconut and toasted pecans, and spoon into the prepared crust. Bake at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden and set. Cool completely on a wire rack (about 1 hour). Chill one hour.

      Lift from the pan, using foil sides as handles. Transfer to a cutting board; cut into bars.

      Makes 2 dozen
