    In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, 1 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup softened butter. Beat for 2 to 3 minutes or until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Pat mixture evenly onto bottom of an ungreased 1/4 sheet pan. Sprinkle pecans evenly over crumb mixture.

    In a small saucepan, combine 2/3 cup butter and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Cook and stir over medium heat until entire surface is bubbly. Cook and stir 1/2 to 1 minute more. Pour into pan, spreading evenly over crust. Bake at 350° F for 18 to 20 minutes or until entire surface is bubbly. Remove from oven; immediately sprinkle with chocolate pieces. Let stand for 2 to 3 minutes to allow chocolate to melt; use a knife to swirl chocolate slightly. Cool completely on wire rack. Use a sharp knife to cut into bars.
