    These are one of my favorite bars! I do the topping a little differently though. When I make them I double the butter and sugar mixture for the topping. Another reviewer said there wasn't enough to cover the bars but this solves the problem and its the best part of the bars anyway.  -  01 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I give this recipe a 5 star rating with the revisions I made. I took others advice and upped the flour to 2 cups and doubled the brown sugar/butter layer. I chopped up my pecan halves a bit and instead of 1 cup milk chocolate chips on top I did 1 cup semi sweet and 1 cup butterscotch swirled. HEAVEN! Oh my good ness these are so good, the butterscotch adds so much! I topped with the chips and put back on the oven to melt them completely so I could swirl them together. YUM!!!!!!!!  -  19 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is almost the exact same recipe my mother handed down to me (and it is always a crowd pleaser). Her quanties on some ingredients are a little different: 2 cu. Flour 1½ cu. Pecan halves 1½ cu. milk chocolate chips Since some reviews think the posted version comes out a little greasy, the extra half cu. of flour may help to absorb that. And you can't go wrong with extra pecans and chocolate!  -  07 Mar 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
