Caramel Pecan Dream Bars: Indulgence in Every Bite


Prepare to embark on a delectable journey of taste with our Caramel Pecan Dream Bars. 🍯🥧 These bars are a decadent combination of rich caramel, crunchy pecans, and a buttery crust, resulting in a dessert that is pure indulgence from the first bite.

Ingredients (for 12 Dream Bars):

For the Crust:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed

For the Caramel Pecan Layer:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

For the Topping:

  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted


1. Create the Crust: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). In a bowl, combine the flour and granulated sugar. Cut in the cold, cubed butter using a pastry cutter or your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press this mixture firmly into the bottom of a greased 9×9-inch baking pan to form the crust.

2. Craft the Caramel Pecan Layer: In a saucepan over medium heat, melt 1/2 cup of butter. Stir in the packed brown sugar and cook for about 2 minutes, or until the mixture is bubbly and well combined. Remove from heat and stir in the chopped pecans. Spread this caramel pecan mixture evenly over the crust.

3. Bake to Perfection: Place the baking pan in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 18-20 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the caramel layer is bubbly.

4. Add the Final Touch: Once the bars have cooled slightly, drizzle the melted semi-sweet chocolate over the top to add a delightful chocolatey layer.

5. Let Them Set: Allow the bars to cool completely in the pan before cutting into squares. This helps the layers to set and the flavors to meld together.

6. Savor the Decadence: Indulge in the luxurious blend of textures and flavors in every bite. The buttery crust, gooey caramel, and crunchy pecans create a symphony of taste that’s both comforting and unforgettable.

7. Perfect for Sharing: Whether as a delightful treat for yourself or a delectable offering at gatherings, these Caramel Pecan Dream Bars are a crowd-pleaser that will have everyone asking for seconds.
