Pecan Pie Brownies

Pecan pie is a must-have dessert for the holidays. Instead of making an additional pie, these brownies will be the perfect addition to the holiday dessert spread. The combination of chocolate and pecan pie flavor is even better than your classic pecan pie.

Ingredients:

  2. Sugar
  3. Light corn syrup
  4. Eggs
  5. Butter
  6. Vanilla extract
  7. Pecans
Ingredients

Instructions:

You can use your favorite homemade brownie recipe, or you can use a box of brownies to save time. These brownies will be very decadent because the pecan pie filling soaks into the brownie as it bakes in a 9×13 baking dish.

Chopping pecans

For this recipe, you can use whole or chopped pecans. I prefer roughly chopped pecans because they are more bite-sized. Pecans add the perfect amount of crunch and salt to the sweet brownies.

How to make Pecan Pie filling

While the brownie batter is baking in the oven, combine all pecan pie filling ingredients except the pecans in a medium sauce pan. whisk for about 10-15 minutes. The melted butter and sugar mixture will bubble and rise while you are stirring and then fall back down as it begins to caramelize. 

How to make Pecan Pie filling

Once the mixture is thick and jelly-like in consistency and medium honey in color, remove the mixture from heat and sprinkle the pecans in. Pour the pecan pie layer onto the brownie layer and spread evenly.

Return the baking pan to the oven for another 30 minutes. The pecan pie filling will flatten and have small bubbles when finished baking. Remove from the oven and let cool completely before cutting to serve.
