These Turtle Bars are a must make for the holidays, or any time of year! A buttery shortbread crust with a homemade caramel filling, nutty pecans and a milk chocolate topping creates these mouthwatering bars!

For the Crust:

1/2 cup of butter

2 cups of flour

1 cup of brown sugar

1 cup of pecan pieces

To create the crust, mix together the butter, flour, and brown sugar using either a pastry blender or a fork until the mixture has a crumbly texture.
Next, press the mixture into a 9″ x 13″ ungreased pan and sprinkle the pecan pieces on top.

 

 

For the Caramel Layer:

2/3 cup of butter
1/2 cup of brown sugar
To make the caramel layer, mix together the butter and brown sugar in a saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring continuously, until boiling. Let the mixture boil for 1 minute.
Pour the mixture over the crust evenly.
Bake the crust in the oven for 20 minutes at 350°F.

For the Topping:

1 cup of milk chocolate chips
Once the crust is removed from the oven, sprinkle the chocolate chips over it. Let the chips sit for 5 minutes to allow them to melt and then spread evenly over the surface of the bars.
Allow the bars to cool, then slice them into the desired portion sizes.

Enjoy!
