Gooey is right! Chocolate, caramel, and pecans make up the decadent topping that covers a rich, buttery crust. And just one bite of these sensational bars will have you saying 'OOH IT'S SO GOOD!!'

  • 1 (12-ounce) box vanilla wafer cookies, finely crushed

  2. In a 9- x 13-inch baking dish, combine butter and wafer crumbs; press into baking dish. Sprinkle with chocolate chips, drizzle with caramel topping, and sprinkle with pecans.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Turtle candies are always one of my favorites, especially at Christmastime. This is a great and easy to make recipe and the bars are delicious. I use walnuts in place of the pecans, because I've always associated walnuts with turtle candies ever since childhood. These would also be good with peanuts, and I've also used dark chocolate chips quite successfully with this. One addition I've made from time to time is to sprinkle coconut on top of the finished bars.

Will be devouring this one....................Watch out sugar read!
