Ingredients

1 1/2 c
all purpose flour
1 pkg
caramels
1/4 c
milk
2 tsp
baking powder
2 tsp
ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp
salt
1 1/2 c
brown sugar
1/2 c
butter, softened
2
eggs
1 Tbsp
vanilla extract
1 c
pecans, chopped

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt; set aside. In another bowl, mix brown sugar, butter, eggs, vanilla and pecans until well blended. Add flour mixture and blend well.
2
Reserve 1 cup of the batter. Spread remaining batter into a lightly greased 13x9" baking pan. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 15 minutes or until firm.
3
In a microwavable bowl, microwave caramels and milk on HIGH for 2 to 3 minutes or until caramels are completely melted, stirring after every minute. Cool for 5 minutes or until slightly thick.
4
Pour over baked layer in pan, spreading to within 1/2 inch of edges. Drop reserved 1 cup batter by spoonfuls over caramel layer. Cut through batter with knife several times for marble effect.
5
Bake an additional 15 to 20 minutes or until center is set. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Cut into bars and enjoy the caramel-y decadence.
