Chattanooga Chew Chews

Chattanooga Chew Chews

I had to make these for my husband.  Not only is he a train buff, he loves cookies and bars.

Crust:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup butter (no substitute), softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 35o degrees.  Mix flour, butter and brown sugar.  Press into an ungreased 9″ x 13″ baking pan.  Sprinkle pecans evenly over unbaked crust.

Caramel Topping:

  • 1 cup butter (no substitute)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 (12-oz.) package semisweet chocolate chips

Melt butter and brown sugar in saucepan.  Bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly.  Pour caramel mixture over crust and pecans.

Bake for 20 or 25 minutes or until entire surface is bubbly.  Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over hot surface.  Gently swirl melted chocolate chips with spatula to give a marbled effect.  Cool at least 5 hours.  Cut into squares.

Makes 32 bars.
