Pecan Pie Brownies

Skill Level:



  • Brownies
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup cocoa
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Topping
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup whole or chopped pecans

How to Make It

Preheat oven to 350˚F. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter with the sugar and cocoa over medium heat, stirring until the butter melts and the mixture is well combined. Remove from the heat and cool slightly, then stir in the eggs and vanilla, and then the flour and salt.

Pour into a parchment-lined 8x8-inch pan, smoothing the top. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until just set; remove from the oven and let cool completely. 

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together the brown sugar, syrup, butter, eggs and vanilla until smooth. Stir in the pecans and pour over the brownie base. Bake for 30 minutes, or until golden and set. Let cool completely, then refrigerate for at least two hours before cutting.
