Prep Time: 10 Minute(s)
Cook Time: 30 Minute(s)
Yield: 48 bars


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups Pillsbury BEST? All Purpose Flour
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Crisco? Original No-Stick Cooking Spray
  • 36 pecan halves
  • 1/2 cup Smucker's? Caramel Flavored Topping
  • 3 tablespoons Smucker's? Hot Fudge Microwaveable Topping
  • 1/3 cup pecans, chopped


  1. HEAT oven to 350°F. Combine sugar, flour, cocoa and salt in medium bowl. Stir in butter, eggs and vanilla; mix well. Dough will be very stiff.
  2. SPRAY a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with no-stick cooking spray. Spread dough into prepared dish. Arrange pecan halves on dough (6 rows crosswise and 6 rows down). Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  3. PLACE caramel topping in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH until hot and bubbly (1 to 2 minutes). Spread over hot bars. Sprinkle with chopped pecans.
  4. PLACE hot fudge topping in small resealable food storage bag; snip off very small corner of bag and squeeze bag to drizzle topping over caramel-pecan layer. Cool completely. Refrigerate bars about 1 hour for easier cutting.
