I love chocolate and I love pecans, and cookies aren’t so bad either. These cookie bars are simply delicious. My sister had a friend whose mother made the most delicious chocolate chip cookies, she used a package of pudding in the batter to give the cookies a soft, moist texture. I took that idea and applied it to my bars. The result was a cookie bar that was soft and moist and gone in an instant. These cookies can be easily adapted. I think they would be delicious with white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts.
