When I saw Karo had a recipe for Lite Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars, I figured I had to try it. It contains chocolate (another one of my favorite things) and pecans and I was curious how the lite Karo syrup would be.
I whipped these up for dessert yesterday and I was surprised that they weren't overly sweet, despite having a cup and a half of sugar and the lite Karo syrup in it.
The picture doesn't really do them justice. The recipe says to let them cool for 2 hours and I just couldn't wait so I cut into them after about 45 minutes. It also calls for a cup of chocolate chips and I had just about 3/4 c, so I'd recommend adding a full cup if your as big a chocolate fan as I am.
I'm going to make these again and TRY and wait the 2 hours to let them cool completely before cutting into them. I think they'll be a nice change, and a lot less time consuming this Thanksgiving than making pecan tarts.
