Turtle Bars

My friend Amy sent this recipe to me because she thought it would be a great addition to my blog. I couldn't agree more. Super easy with a very yummy end result. I added some Heath chips, not necessary but loved the extra crunch.

2 C Flour
1 C Brown Sugar
1/2 C Butter soft
1 C Pecan Halves

1 C Butter
3/4 C Brown Sugar

1/2 bag Heath Pieces ~ found in grocery store by chocolate chips
1/2 bag Chocolate Chips ~ I used Milk Chocolate

Crust: combine four, sugar and butter. Pat firmly into sprayed 13x9 pan. Evenly sprinkle nuts on top of crust.

Caramel: In a small saucepan, melt butter and brown sugar. Stirring well it comes to a boil. Gently boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Pour caramel evenly over nuts and crust.

Bake 18-22 minutes or until bubbly in 350 degree oven. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle Heath chips and chocolate chips on top. Allow to melt 2-3 minutes, then spread the melted chips to cover. Cool completely before cutting.

Pat your crust into a sprayed 13x9 pan

Sprinkle crust with nuts.Melt your butter and brown sugar together. Stirring almost constantly.It's boiling, see the bubbles on the side. Keep stirring for another minute. Pour on top of nuts and crust.Pour caramel on top and put in a 350 oven about 15 minutes or until bubbly.Bubbly and ready to come out of the oven.

Sprinkle the Heath bar pieces andchips on top and wait about 3 minutes for them to melt. Then swirl with the back of a spoon to spread them out.I should have probably used a few more chips to make them "pretty" but this is plenty with the Heath bar underneath.Couldn't wait until they were completely cool. YUMMY!
