CARAMEL PECAN BARS – The Southern Lady Cooks

These delicious caramel pecan bars are only a few ingredients and absolutely delicious. Perfect for any potluck or gathering! My family loves these and they are so simple to prepare. Similar to layer bars, but with a few different ingredients. Definitely put these on your “must make” list!

Caramel Pecan Bars Ingredients Needed:

Vanilla wafers

Sugar

Butter

Sweetened condensed milk

Egg

Honey

Butterscotch chips

Pecans

Notes: You can easily switch out the chips for a different flavor. You could use walnuts instead of pecans. These can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator but I would recommend letting them sit out for a bit before serving.
