German Chocolate Pecan Bars

Miss Mabel's Summer Baking Bucket List continues.

Unfortunately, this was the only photo I took of these decadent bars.

She made these with her cousin who was visiting from Michigan.  There was so much activity going on in the house between graduation and Confirmation that I completely forgot to snap a close up.  They rapidly disappeared, they were so good!


1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup cold butter, cubed
12 ounces dark chocolate chips
3 eggs
3/4 cup light corn syrup
3/4 firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
3 cups pecan halves, toasted


1.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Line a 9" x 13" baking dish with parchment paper, allowing an overhang on the two ends.  Set aside.

2.  In a large bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, and powdered sugar.

3.  Add the cubed cold butter and blend with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles small peas. It will be dry but it will come together when baked.

4.  Press the flour mixture into the prepared baking dish.

5.  Bake for 15 minutes.

6.  Remove the baked chocolate crust from the oven and place the pan on a wire rack.  Sprinkle the dark chocolate chips evenly across the crust.  Allow to cool for 30 minutes.

7.  In a large bowl, gently whisk the eggs.  Add the brown sugar, corn syrup and melted butter, and whisk until smooth.

8.  Mix in the unsweetened shredded coconut and pecans.

9.  Pour the pecan mixture on top of the melted chocolate chips and spread evenly.

10.  Bake for 30 to 34 minutes, or until the bars are golden brown and the filling has set.

11.  Allow to cool completely, then refrigerate for 1 hour before cutting into squares.
