Salted Caramel Pecan Bars

If you like salty, you’re going to love these salted caramel pecan bars!! And they’re so so easy to make!

All credit for this recipe comes from a member of Allrecipes.com.  I tweaked it just a bit and I posted the original recipe below.

Let’s Get Started

We start by spreading a cup of chopped pecans on a baking sheet and cooking them in a 350 degree pre-heated oven. Toast for about 12 minutes stirring halfway through. When the pecans are cooked remove from oven and set aside but leave the oven on.

While the pecans are in the oven we’ll start on the caramel. To a heavy saucepan add 3/4 cup of butter, a cup of packed brown sugar, and two tablespoons of heavy whipping cream. Bring to a boil over medium heat stirring occasionally.

After the caramel comes to a boil remove from heat and add a teaspoon of vanilla extract and the toasted pecans.

Spread the caramel/pecan mixture using a spatula then place the cookie sheet in the oven and cook at 350 degrees for 10 to 11 minutes.  The caramel will be bubbling.
