Turtle Bars

Until a few days ago I had never even heard of Turtle Bars before. Anyway thanks to Pinterest I discovered them and I knew straight away I had to try some! They are rich and sweet so you can’t eat to many at once but OMG they are good!

Turtle Bars | Happy Little Kiwi


Bar Base

2 cup flour
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup softened butter
6 oz. pecan halves


2/3 cup butter
½ cup brown sugar
10 oz. bittersweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 170 degree celsius.

Place the flour, sugar and butter in the bowl of an electric mixer. Blend until the mixture is crumbly. Press mixture into a 8×10-inch pan. Arrange the pecans over the flour mixture and set aside.

In a small saucepan melt butter and brown sugar. Stirring frequently bring to the boil for 30 seconds, keep stirring to make sure the mixture is fully blended. Remove from heat and pour the over the pecan covered base. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips then pop back in the oven for a minute or two to melt the chocolate. Remove from oven and spread the chocolate into an even layer with a spatula. Let cool in pan completely and then cut into small squares.

I hope you enjoy this recipe, let me know if you give it a try! To keep up to date with more sweet treats from Happy Little Kiwi feel free to follow along on Pinterest or Facebook.

    In England we have something very similar called millionaires shortbread, but there are no pecans involved in the shortbread base. Love the idea of adding that!
