Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars

This recipe comes from Martha Stewart's Everyday Food magazine. I love chocolate pecan pie, and here are some of those flavors and textures in a bar cookie.

½ cup butter, room temperature
¼ cup packed light brown sugar
1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
¾ cup light corn syrup
½ cup granulated sugar
1 package semisweet chocolate chips (2 cups)
2 cups coarsely chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line bottom and sides of a 9x13-inch baking pan with aluminum foil. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat 1 stick butter, brown sugar, flour, and salt until coarse crumbs form. Pour mixture into prepared pan; press firmly into bottom. Bake until lightly browned, 25-30 minutes. Let cool, 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in same large bowl, mix eggs, corn syrup, granulated sugar, and 2 tablespoons melted butter until well combined. Add chocolate chips and pecans; spread over crust. Bake until set, 25-30 minutes. Cool completely in pan before lifting out (use foil to lift).
