Decadent dessert bars packed with PC Black Label Toasted Sesame Caramel Sauce, chocolate and sweet buttery filling.



For the base

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup PC Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour Blend
  • 1/4 cup icing sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch


  • 1 cup President’s Choice Decadent Chocolate Chunks
  • 1/2 cup pecans, pieced
  • 4 tablespoons PC Black Label Toasted Sesame Caramel Dessert Sauce
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8-by-8-inch slightly greased baking pan lined with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients for the base and using your hands, cut butter into dry ingredients until small lumps and wet sand like texture forms.
  3. Pack down the mixture into prepared pan, firmly with a cold (wet) spoon and hands until an even base is reached.
  4. Evenly sprinkle with the chocolate chunks, pecans and drizzle the PC Black Label Toasted Sesame Caramel Dessert Sauce on top.
  5. In a large, microwave-safe bowl, combine 1/2 cup butter, brown sugar, whipping cream, and heat on high power for 1 minute to melt.
  6. Remove bowl from microwave, and whisk until mixture is smooth.
  7. Return bowl to microwave for another minute on high. Then stir again and add in vanilla and salt.
  8. Slowly and evenly pour the caramel sauce over the chocolate chunks, pecan and caramel sauce.
  9. Place pan on a cookie sheet and bake for about 30 minutes, or until caramel is clearly bubbling around edges.
  10. Allow bars to cool in the pan on a wire rack for at least 3 hours, or covered overnight, before slicing and serving.
