Homemade Heath Bars

This recipe is from Mom's Big Book of Cookies. 
Ridiculously easy to make, they taste exactly like Heath bars.
Now that I know I can make my own heath bars in 10 minutes, I'm in trouble.

Stir 6 tbsp. butter w/ 1/4 cup brown sugar over low-medium heat until sugar is dissolved.
Pour in 8x8 pan (you may want to place down some aluminum foil to make cleanup easier) that has been lined with...graham crackers!  You may need to cut the graham crackers to get them to fit right.  Bake at 375* for 10 minutes or until bubbling.
Sprinkle 1/2 cup of chocolate chips on top, return to oven for 2 minutes.
Spread melted chips across top.
Add chopped pecans if desired.
Refridgerate until firm and cut into bars.
These are so yummy, and have the potential for creativity (use white chocolate or butterscotch chips, etc.)

I'm linking this recipe up with Mere's Foodie Friday.  You can find her HERE.

Oh, boy! There's a lot of us in trouble now. ;-) Keep those recipes coming though. This is one of the reasons why God invented the great outdoors.
