  5. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine 1/2 cup of butter, whipping cream, and brown sugar. Heat on high for 1 minute, or until melted.
  6. Remove the bowl from the microwave and whisk mixture until smooth.
  7. Return bowl to the microwave and heat again for 1 minute on high.
  8. Remove the bowl and whisk again. Whisk in vanilla and salt.
  9. Pour the caramel sauce over the chocolate chips and pecans evenly.
  10. Place pan on a cookie sheet and bake for 30 minutes or until caramel is bubbling around the edges. Allow the bars to cool for at least 3 hours before slicing or serving.
