Choc-O-Licious Cookie Bars

These cookies bars are on over-load when it comes to sweet, melted chocolate.  They're soft and chewy yet have an ever so slight crunch from the added pecan chips.  The contrast of textures and flavors are enough to send you running for another bar... and a large glass of milk!
