Mini Kisses Praline Bars

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/3 cups packed light brown sugar, divided
1/2 cup (1 stick) plus 2/3 cup butter, divided
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans or pecan pieces
1 3/4 cups (10 ounce package) Hershey’s Mini Kisses Chocolate

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In large bowl, stir together flour and 1 cup brown sugar; with pastry blender or fork, cut in 1/2 cup butter until fine crumbs form. Press mixture into a 13 x 9-inch baking pan; sprinkle with pecans.

In small saucepan, place remaining 2/3 cup butter and remaining 1/3 cup brown sugar; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture boils. Continue boiling, stirring constantly, 30 seconds, until sugar dissolves; drizzle evenly over pecans and crust. Bake 17 to 22 minutes until topping is bubbly and golden; remove from oven. Immediately sprinkle Mini Kisses Chocolate over top. Cool completely in pan on wire rack; cut into bars.

Makes about 3 dozen.
