Butter Pecan Turtle Bars

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped pecans
2/3 cup butter
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup milk chocolate morsels

Beat the 1/2 cup butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; add 1 cup brown sugar, beating well. Gradually add flour, mixing well. Press mixture into an ungreased 13x9x2-inch pan. Sprinkle with pecans; set aside.

Combine 2/3 cup butter and 1/2 cup brown sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and pour mixture over crust.

Bake at 350 degrees (F) for 18 minutes or until bubbly. Remove from oven; immediately sprinkle with chocolate morsels. Let stand 2 to 3 minutes; swirl chocolate gently with a knife to create a marbled effect. Cool on a wire rack.

Cut into squares.

Makes 4 dozen.
