Semi-homemade and easy to make chewy butter pecan bars will disappear in no time!
I made this batch and the bars were gone in days. Actually I think it was more like 22 hours. My husband and I DEVOURED them! These chewy butter pecan bars are so tasty! These remind me of a chewy bar version of butter pecan ice cream!
Now, I'll be the first to admit butter pecan is not my first choice for an ice cream flavor, that's cookie dough, but it is in my top five! And if you like butter pecan ice cream, pair it with these chewy butter pecan bars and you'll have an immense and delicious flavor explosion.
What I love about this recipe is how fast it comes together. Starting with a box of cake mix and adding in a handful of additional ingredients, you're on your way to these chewy and buttery nut bars.
When you're making this recipe you may want to add more water, but don't do it! Just keep stirring, the dough will come together! Use the back of the spoon and a little elbow grease to mix all ingredients together.
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.
You can always make these bars the day before an event. Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator and bring them to room temperature before you serve them. And before you know it, the batch will be GONE!
