Turtle Cookie Bars

Ingredients :
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter (room temperature)
1 cup pecan halves
2 tsp salt
2/3 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
1/4 cup pecans, finely chopped

Directions :

In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the flour, sugar, and butter. Mix on medium speed until well combined. Firmly press the mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 9 x 13 pan. In a small bowl, mix the pecan halves and salt together. Layer the pecan halves over the crust.
In a medium pan, cook the butter and brown sugar over medium high heat, until boiling. Cook for 3 minutes, then remove from heat. Pour the mixture evenly over the pecans.
Place the pan in a 350F oven, and cook for 15 minutes, or until golden and bubbly. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips over the pecans. Allow the chips to soften for a few minutes, then gently swirl the chocolate over the pecans. Sprinkle with finely chopped pecans, and let cool for two hours. Cut into bars, serve, and enjoy!
