(4) Stir in pecans.
(5) Pour the mixture into a greased, 15in x 10in x 1in baking pan (a 9in x 13in pan is also good). Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes, or until toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack.

Frost baked, and cooled mixture, and cut into approximately 35 squares. For eyes, place two pieces of candy corn on each bar.
