Chocolate-Pecan Pie Bars
When I saw the recipe for German Chocolate-Pecan Pie Bars in the September edition of Southern Living Magazine, I knew I’d be baking them soon. New neighbors moving in across the street proved to be just the excuse I needed. Although I love coconut, I decided to make these without it. I also used Milk Chocolate Chips instead of semi-sweet. And, of course, I added the Bourbon!

These bars are so good and easy to make. We couldn’t resist trying one when it was still warm, but the only way to get them to cut into perfect squares is to chill them overnight first. Just delicious!

I think your neighbors must be the luckiest newcomers to your area. I am trying to imagine what it must have been like to be given a tray of that deliciousness. I do remember several moves ago, a neighbor brought over an entire cheesecake. My eyes just popped out and I was so deliriously grateful. I thought about bringing treats to our neighbors here in Houston. One family is from India…the other family (on the other side) is from Pakistan. I started worrying too much about what in the world I would bake and would they think I am looney and nosey! I should have brought them something but I chickened out! Good for you.
Chocolate pecan bars…OMG!! These sound so luscious, Susan! How nice of you to welcome your new neighbors with such a delectable treat!!

I just came to your site via the comment you left on Thyme and the first thing I did was gasp! Wow these bars look incredible. I seriously need to give this recipe a go. Now I need to spend some time and go through your archives. Love your work!
Mmm, I can smell themall the way to Greece Susan. That good they look!

Very pretty and delicious looking Susan, I love that first photo – makes me want to rach into the screen and grab one – well, maybe two!

You’re the kind of neighbor I want to have. When I was growing up, we always took a sweet/dessert to welcome someone and a casserole if someone died!!! Following my mom’s example, I’ve always taken brownies to welcome neighbors but they look bland compared to your bars. When we moved to Nevada, into a gated community, no one welcomed us with anything. I still do not know the neighbors on either side, after eight years. And, after 4 years, I stopped even trying to greet them. Keep being a good neighbor, Susan. It counts for a lot.
