Ingredients

3 c
pecan halves
1 3/4 c
all purpose flour
3/4 c
confectioners' sugar
3/4 c
cold butter, cubed
1/4 c
cocoa, unsweetened
1 1/2 c
semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 large
eggs
3/4 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
3/4 c
corn syrup, light
1/4 c
butter, unsalted
1 c
coconut, sweetened flaked

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350°.
2
Arrange pecans in a single layer of a shallow baking pan. Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly toasted. Stir halfway through baking.
3
Line bottom and sides of a 9"x 13" baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving an overhang on two short sides. Grease foil.
4
Whisk together flour, confectioners' sugar, and cocoa. Add cold butter, and combine with a pastry blender* until mixture resembles coarse meal. Press mixture into bottom and about 3/4-inch up sides of prepared pan.
5
Bake crust for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over crust. Allow to cool on a wire rack at least 30 minutes.
6
Place eggs in a large mixing bowl, and beat lightly. Add brown sugar, corn syrup, and melted butter. Whisk together until smooth. Stir in coconut and pecans. Pour evenly over partially baked crust.
7
Bake 28-34 minutes, or until edges are golden and filling has set. Cool completely on a wire rack. Then, refrigerate for an hour.
8
Using foil overhang, lift bars from pan and place on a cutting board. Use a sharp knife or pizza cutter to cut into bars.
