Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt Pecan Cookie Bars
From Cheeky Kitchen
Total time: 60 minutes
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 55 minutes
- 1 (16.5 ounce) tube Pillsbury® Sugar Cookie Dough
- 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt flakes ## Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, knead together the sugar cookie dough, pecans, and flour, until a soft dough has formed. Press the dough into the bottom of a parchment-lined 9x13" baking dish. Bake until golden brown and the center of the cookies have set, about 22-26 minutes. Remove and cool completely (placing the pan in the fridge helps speed up this process).
In a medium microwave-safe bowl, heat together the chocolate chips and butter until melted, about 90 seconds. Stir until smooth, then spread over the cooled cookie bars. Sprinkle with sea salt flakes and return the cookie bars to the fridge for 5-10 minutes, until the chocolate had firmed up slightly. Slice into 2" squares. Store bars in an airtight, plastic container in a cool, dry place for up to 3 days.
