Ingredients

1
roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated sugar cookies
1
bag (12 oz) semisweet chocolate chips (2 cups)
3
cups chopped pecans
1/2
cup butter
1/2
cup packed light brown sugar
1
jar (12.25 oz) caramel ice cream topping
1
cup graham cracker crumbs (16 squares)
  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Press cookie dough evenly in bottom of ungreased 13x9-inch pan.
  • 2 Sprinkle 1 cup of the chocolate chips and 1 1/2 cups of the pecans over dough; lightly press into dough. Set aside.
  • 3 In 2-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Stir in brown sugar, caramel topping and graham cracker crumbs. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Pour over crust in pan; spread evenly. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup chocolate chips and 1 1/2 cups pecans.
  • 4 Bake 25 to 32 minutes or until edges are deep golden brown and pecans are lightly toasted. Cool on cooling rack 30 minutes; loosen sides from pan, but do not cut. Cool completely, about 3 hours longer. (For firmer bars, let stand an additional 2 hours.) For bars, cut into 6 rows by 4 rows.
