KENTUCKY DERBY PIE BARS

I've never been to the Kentucky Derby! It is something that hubby and I have on our "bucket list." Each year there are so many festivities surrounding this event. Steeped in tradition, from the extravagant hats, to the beautiful Garland of Roses, and then there's always the original Mint Julep.

Just because we aren't attending the Derby doesn't mean we can't enjoy some of the derby favorites. I've found a recipe with a twist on an old derby favorite, Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie. It's very close, but without the Bourbon, they are Kentucky Derby Pie Bars. The melted chocolate and chopped pecans are delightful!





The recipe has a graham cracker crust that is baked first. Then the addition of some sinful ingredients like; corn syrup, butter, pecans and mini semisweet morsels.... makes the bars quite decadent.

Whether you are attending the derby or not, this recipe is a sweet treat that can be enjoyed anytime!


    Wishing y'all a wonderful weekend!
