I stalk Bakerella. I've never made anything from there though. I enjoy looking at the beautiful treats but don't seem to have the patience to actually try any of the recipes. Until I saw this one. . . simple enough for even me.
Taken from Bakerella
Makes one 9 x 13 pan
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 C butter, softened (10 2/3 Tbsp)
1 lb light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
11.5 oz package milk chocolate chips
1 C chopped pecans
1 C caramel chips
Sift flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Set aside.
Combine butter and sugar using a mixer until blended.
Add eggs, one at a time to sugar mixture, mixing on low in between each addition. Add vanilla and mix.
Add flour and mix until combined.
Stir in chips and then pecans.
Coat a 13 X 9 pan with non-stick spray and spread batter evenly into dish.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until top is golden brown.
I had a tough time getting these to bake. The original recipe was 30 minutes of baking; I ended up leaving them in the oven for a little more than 45 minutes. They needed additional time to set before slicing. The final product was really good, though. They stayed moist and fresh tasting for several days.
