German Chocolate-Pecan Pie Bars is one dessert with unsurpassed chocolate decadence. These gooey dessert bars have a chocolate shortbread crust, chocolate pecan pie filling, and are topped with toasted pecans. German Chocolate-Pecan Pie Bars — it almost sounds as if this dessert is having an identity crisis! — take a little extra time and effort to make. First, you bake, then cool, bake again, cool again, and so on. But, don’t be scared away from making the effort. Just be sure to plan ahead. You and your German Chocolate friends will be glad you did!
Pecan pie meets German chocolate cake and baked into cute little squares! Need I say more?? 😍
Okay, I’ll say a little more. These German chocolate pecan pie bars are super addictive and perfect for a Thanksgiving dessert. Or really any occasion! They are also paleo, gluten-free, and can be easily made dairy-free.
I LOVE a good German chocolate cake. Super moist chocolate cake with that ooey-gooey light brown frosting filled with coconut. YUM!!! And pecan pie? Well, it’s definitely one of my holiday favorites. I chose to combine the two into one flavor-packed masterpiece! And dang is it good.
