Chewy Pecan Cinnamon Squares

Great Halloween treats!

This is a great treat that would be good for Halloween parties. For a yummy dessert, top the warm squares with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. These squares are super chewy and rich. When they come out of the oven, you might think they’ve “fallen,” and you might think they haven’t cooked enough. Don’t worry – they’re supposed to be that way!
