Pecan-Date Bars

    Hungry for a little piece of pecan pie with big flavor? These bars are the answer. The chocolate, bourbon, and dates put these bars over the top. Keep refrigerated, & cut them small: 24 bars from a 7x11 pan is accurate.

    I'm not sure what I did wrong, but I ended up with an inedible disaster. The top gooey layer tasted fine, but I could not cut through the crust or otherwise remove the bars from the pan. The whole thing is currently soaking in my sink - I hope it comes clean!

    These were perfect! Tasted just like the southern pecan pie I grew up on. I did make one minor alteration. Instead of mixing ALL of the pecans in with everything else, I just mixed in a little bit and then sprinkled pecans on top so it would have more of that pecan pie look to it. Very delicious, and will definitely make these again!

    wow - amazing! I baked these for a friend's summer wedding and they were a big hit. So simple and easy to make beforehand, I made them the day before and stored them in the refrigerator. The only modification I made was extra pecans.

    Made this again for a July 4th BBQ, held up well outside in the heat! Next time I plan to add a little more dark chocolate bits or decorate with a chocolate drizzle on top. Easy to transport to a potluck. Be sure to spray the pan well for easy release.

    Delicious bars. Be sure to prep pan well though as I didn't and it took longer to get them out in nice looking pieces than it did to make them. Yummy, like little bites of pecan pie.
