1/2 cup butter
2 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup pecan pieces
2/3 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup milk chocolate chips

CRUST: Using a pastry blender or fork, combine the butter, flour, and brown sugar until the mixture forms fine crumbs.  Press the mixture into an ungreased 9″ x 13″ pan.  Sprinkle the crust with the pecan pieces. Set aside.

CARAMEL LAYER: Combine the butter and brown sugar in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir constantly. Allow the mixture to boil for 1 minute.  Drizzle the mixture evenly over the crust.  Bake the crust for 20 minutes at 350°F.

TOPPING:  Immediately after removing the squares from the oven, sprinkle it with chocolate chips. Allow the chocolate chips to stand for 5 minutes so that they will melt; then spread evenly over the bars.  Let the bars cool before cutting.
