Caramel Pecan Bars

1 box yellow cake mix
1/4 C. butter
3 C. chopped pecans
1 C. brown sugar
1/2 C. white sugar
1/2 C. honey
1 C. butter
1/4 C. whipping cream

Cut butter into cake mix and press into greased 9 x 13 glass pan. Pour 3 cups pecans over crust. Bring to a boil the brown sugar, sugar, honey and butter. Boil for 3 minutes, remove from heat and add whipping cream. Stir until well blended. Pour over crust and bake at 350 degrees for 17-22 minutes. Cut into bars when cooled.

*I tried using a gluten free cake mix... did NOT work! I don't recommend it! But I think that the cake step could probably be eliminated altogether if you want to make these gluten free. They would still taste pretty darn good! These are a nice holiday treat!
