My top secret way to cut these bars is to use a pan scraper! it works excellent! The bars won’t stick to the scraper and you’ll have a nice clean cut every time.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 box, 15.25 oz, butter pecan flavored cake mix
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 24 whole pecan halves

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 and grease a 9x13 baking pan with nonstick coking spray.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine cake mix, brown sugar and flour. Mix well.
  • Add corn syrup, butter, eggs and water and mix well. The dough will take a minute to come together. Continue to mix and the dough will form.
  • Fold in chopped pecans.
  • Press into prepared pan. I find placing my hand in a sandwich bag sprayed with nonstick coking spray helps to press the dough into the pan.
  • Place 24 whole pecan halves in rows in the pan.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until edges are brown and center is set. Cool completely before cutting into 24 bars.
