CHUNKY PECAN PIE BARS

Crust:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup packed brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a 13 x 9-inch baking pan and set aside.

Beat the flour, butter, and brown sugar together in a small mixer bowl until crumbly.  Press into the bottom of the pan.  Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

Filling:
3 large eggs
3/4 cup corn syrup
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tbsp butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chunks
1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped pecans

Beat the eggs, corn syrup, sugar, butter, and vanilla together in a medium mixing bowl using a wire whisk.  Stir in the chocolate chunks and the pecans.  Pour evenly over the baked crust.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until set, at 350 degrees.  Remove from oven and set pan on a wire rack to cool.  Cool completely before cutting into 36 bars.
