Creamy Pecan Chocolate Chip Bars

Creamy Pecan Chocolate Chip Bars

Bar cookies are one of my favourite treats to make because you stir them together, bake and 16 bars are ready to go. Regular cookies are yummy but they take a long time to get done making batch after batch. Instead, make these Creamy Pecan Chocolate Chip Bars. They’re perfect for your Christmas cookie tray or any time you want a delicious treat.

Make a few batches of these, a double batch of Homemade Nuts and Bolts and some No Bake Peanut Butter Cornflake Cookies and you could be done with your homemade gifts for Christmas!
