Chunky Pecan Pie Bars

For the Crust:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1/4 cup packed brown sugar

Filling:
3 large eggs
3/4 cup corn syrup
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups coarsely chopped semisweet or bittersweet chocolate (or chocolate chunks in a bag!)
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan.

2. For the crust, mix together the flour, butter and brown sugar until crumbly. Press into the baking pan and bake for 12-15 minutes or until lightly brown.

3. For the filling, beat the eggs, corn syrup, sugar, butter and vanilla extract with a wire whisk. Stir in the chunks and pecans. Pour evenly over the baked crust and bake for 25-30 minutes or until set.

4. Cool in the pan on a wire rack. Cool completely and cut into bars. Store in an airtight container at room temperature (or in the refrigerator if you live in a warm/humid area with no air conditioning).
