Salted Caramel Pecan Bars

Salted Caramel Pecan Bars Recipe

What is it about caramel and salt that go together so well? I know it is partially the sweet/salty thing but it’s not like you take salt and sprinkle it on your strawberries and say it is delicious. At least, I don’t but I do remember putting salt on watermelon when I was a kid. These Salted Caramel Pecan Bars are a mouthwatering combination of caramel and chocolate with a crunch of chopped pecans. This recipe is similar to my Club Cracker Bars recipe from when I first started blogging, but I used chopped pecans instead of crackers.

    A friend made these for me and they were delicious! Now I’m making them…..I’m assuming you mean graham cracker crumbs? Can they be just crushed by hand or do they need to be ground up in a food processor? Thanks!
