These cookies/bars are so. Freaking. Good.

Chopped pecans and a caramel topping, drizzled with chocolate, all on a shortbread cookie base = deliciousness!

Two recipes in one

The recipe is a bit tiresome because you really need to make two recipes (first the cookie recipe and then the bar recipe) but it’s so worth it in the end.

The sweet caramel topping and chocolate drizzle mellow out with a buttery shortbread cookie and pecans. It’s crunchy sweet goodness that satisfies.

Careful. They’re addictive

I actually had to stop myself from eating too many. So I gave a plateful of these to my friend Jen and her family. I got great reviews and a recipe request which I was happy to pass along.
