Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a 3 Qt. mixing bowl, combine crust ingredients. Mix at medium speed, scraping sides of bowl often, 2-3 minutes or until well mixed and particles are fine.

Pat firmly into ungreased 13x9x2 inch pan. Sprinkle pecans evenly over unbaked crust. Prepare caramel layer (see below); pour evenly over pecans and crust.

Bake near center of 350 degree F oven for 18-22 minutes, or until entire caramel layer is bubbly and crust is light golden brown. Remove from oven. Immediately, sprinkle with milk chocolate chips. Allow chocolate chips to melt slightly (2-3 minutes.) Slightly swirl chips as they melt; leave some whole for a marbled effect. Do not spread chips. Cool completely. Cut into 3-4 dozen bars.
