Mix all bar ingredients together. Spray a 10X15 pan and put 2/3 of dough in pan. Bake for 13 minutes. While bars are cooking put all ingredients (except vanilla) for caramel in sauce pan. Bring to an almost boil making sure all sugar has disolved. Add vanilla after taking off heat. After bars have baked remove from oven. Sprinkle pecans and then caramel. Add the remaining dough. Bake for an additional 18-22 minutes. Enjoy!

If you don't want to make the caramel you can always use caramel in the jar.
