3/4 cup brown sugar

3 eggs

Remove 2/3 cups of crust and set aside. Then press the remaining crust into the bottom of 9×13 pan. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and reduce heat to 325 degrees.

To prepare the filling combine the corn syrup, dark corn syrup, eggs and prepared crust. Beat together till well combined with no lumps. Add in the vanilla, pecans and chocolate chips.
