Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie Pumpkin Bars

Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie Pumpkin Bars

Lovely moist pumpkin bars with gooey and buttery chocolate chip pecan pie filling baked right on top.  I’ve taken my two favorite flavors this fall and married them in these Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie Pumpkin Bars.

Let’s get real for a moment.  I’m going to rewind to about September when I posted this monstrosity.  I was so excited for those blondie-brownie-pie-bar-things.  Maybe I was a little over ambitious with three massive layers of brownie, pumpkin blondie, oh…and chocolate chip pecan pie filling.  The first mistake I made was trying to fit it all in a 9×9 pan, so in the recipe I noted as an option to maybe half the blondie portion.  I wrote it like I was baking with the lazy and sugar high segment of my crazy little brain.  Nevertheless, I still posted it to my blog because I thought it turned out yummy.  Also I thought, “Who the heck even knows my blog exists?”.
