A few of my other favorite recipes from the book include Toasted Coconut Lime Cheesecake Bars, Snickerdoodle Blondies, and Funfetti Cream Cheese Bars! This book is fantastic if you’re always signing up to take baked goods to bake sales, birthday parties, office parties, or just have a major baking hobby like I do! You have to try the Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars too! They’re SO GOOD!

Being from the South, we love our pecan pie so chocolate just takes it over the top. Ooey gooey and crunchy in all the right places. Plus, loads of chocolate flavor. Who doesn’t love that? I also think bar desserts are so great to make because you can cut them into whatever size you prefer.

These bars would be a perfect addition to a Derby party because they remind me of the pie we enjoy watching during the races! Mental note for this year’s horse races! Now on to the recipe….
