Pecan Pie Brownies


Pecan Pie Brownies


  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks), melted
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp. flour (for tossing chocolate chips)


  • 1/3 cup light corn syrup
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3-1/2 cups pecans


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Make brownies. You can use a boxed mix if you’d rather.
  3. For homemade, sift the flour, salt and cocoa and set aside. Add the butter, sugar, vanilla and eggs, one at a time, to a large bowl. Mix together. Add the flour mixture and mix well. Sprinkle the teaspoon of flour over the chocolate chips in a small bowl and toss. Add the chocolate chips to the mixture and mix well. Pour into a greased 9-by-13 inch baking dish and bake for 25 minutes. Set aside.
  4. Make pecan pie topping. Add the corn syrup, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, salt and melted butter to a medium-sized bowl. Mix together. Add the pecans and stir until all are covered. Pour over the brownies and spread out gently.
  5. Bake again for 25-30 minutes until done.
