Prepare the crust:

  1. Add all ingredients for the crust to medium sized bowl and stir together until well combined.  The mixture will be very moist, but will firm up in the freezer.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a 9 x 5 bread pan lined with parchment paper, spread it evenly and press it down firmly.
  3. Put the pan in the freezer while you prepare the pecan pie layer.

Prepare the pecan pie layer:

  1. Add all the ingredients for the pecan pie layer to a food processor and process until it is well combined.  The mixture will have a sticky texture.
  2. Remove the pan from the freezer and transfer the pecan mixture into the pan, on top of the crust.
  3. Spread it evenly and press it down firmly.

Add the pecan layer:

  1. Sprinkle the chopped pecans over the top of the mixture and press them down into the mixture so they are slightly embedded into the pecan pie layer and so they don't fall off.

Prepare the cacao drizzle:

  1. Add all the ingredients for the cacao drizzle to a small bowl and stir until it's well combined and smooth.
  2. Using a spoon, drizzle the mixture over the top of the pecans.
  3. Return the pan to the freezer for approximately 60 minutes, or until it becomes firm and hardens.
  4. Remove the parchment paper from the pan to cut them into bars or squares.
  5. Store them in the freezer or refrigerator until ready to serve because they will get soft and lose their shape if left out at room temperature.
  6. Enjoy!
