Pecan Pie Brownies

Pecan Pie. Brownies. Merged together to form a chocolate-y, gooey, pecan-y (ok, so maybe that's not a real word, but stick with me) dessert.  I made these for Thanksgiving, and they were so popular that they may make an appearance at Christmas too!  I first saw them over at Plain Chicken, and knowing how much my oldest daughter loves pecan pie, and my love for chocolate, I knew I had to give them a go.

Pecan Pie Brownies 

1 package brownie mix and ingredients listed on box (9x9 size)
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon flour (I use unbleached all-purpose)
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups pecans, chopped

Preheat oven to 350.
Spray a 9x9-inch pan with cooking spray (or butter it).
Prepare/mix brownie mix according to package directions.
Spread in 9x9-inch pan. (do not bake yet!)
Whisk together melted butter, brown sugar, flour, corn syrup, vanilla and eggs.
Stir in chopped pecans.
Spoon pecan mixture over uncooked brownies.
Bake 30-35 minutes.

Mine did not set up nice and pretty like the picture in the original post, they were more runny and gooey. That's not a bad thing. However, my 11 y/o did most of the work on this one, so it could have been an error or they didn't bake quite long enough or the kind of brownie mix we used. We used the Ghiradelli Triple Chocolate! Can't have too much chocolate ;)  They were yummy all the same!

  1. I made these for Thanksgiving too, from that same recipe! They were a huge hit, especially with my nine year old who actually said, "These turned out really good, Mom!" I nearly fell over.

    1. hahaha... Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! I love her recipes, I've made so many I'm feeling a little stalkerish!

  2. These look fantastic. I love the flavor combo.

  3. OK, I see lots of yummy-looking desserts on-line, but this is seriously making my mouth water {and beg for some!} just by reading the recipe! Pinning so I can make some at Christmas!

  4. I am not a brownie person, per se, but you have won my heart with this one. I am making these for sure!

  5. Brownies and Pecan Pie? I don't have to choose? Be still my heart. These look amazing!
