Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9x9 baking pan by lining it with foil and spraying the foil with no-stick spray.
In a large bowl, mix together the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add in the vanilla and egg and mix until combined. Set aside.
In another bowl, whisk the flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, mixing well between each addition.
Fold in the chocolate chips and pecans. Then press the cookie dough into the bottom of your prepared pan. Top with the caramel baking bits, a few extra chocolate chips and some pecans for presentation. Sprinkle with the coarse sea salt.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, until edges are golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to completely cool before cutting for a prettier bar. Pull the cookie bars out with the foil overhang and then slice on a cutting board.
