    Ingredients for Southerly Pecan Dessert Bites

    • 1 box cake mix white or yellow
    • 1 cup brown sugar
    • 1/2 cup butter melted
    • 2 large eggs
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla
    • 6 ounces semisweet morsels
    • 3/4 cups pecans chopped
    • butter for greasing baking pan **NOTE baking spray does not allow this final bake to release as well as butter


    The Method

    • Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter a 9 x 13 x 1 sheet pan and set aside.
    • Mix all ingredients except for the chocolate morsels and the pecans. the dough will be very sticky, so use a rubber spatula to turn out onto the buttered baking sheet.
    • Use the spatula to spread the dough out onto the pan, being sure to catch the corners.
    • Sprinkle chocolate morsels and chopped pecans on top.
    • Bake at 350°F for 25 minutes. These bites are chewy and may not appear initially to be done, but really are. Cool and cut into twelve squares, and then cut each square in quarters. Place into individual muffin papers for easy handling and cleaner serving. No refrigeration required.
