Pecan Pie Brownies are perfect for the indecisive dessert eater. It’s a hybrid dessert– brownies topped with pecan pie filling!
The combination is really amazing. The caramel nuttiness of the pie filling cuts through the rich chocolate, and makes you feel like you’ve had two different desserts!
The secret to a good pecan pie filling is Chef Shamy Cinnamon Honey Butter. It adds an extra little hint of flavor to an already flavorful pie; I love the boost of cinnamon in there.
This recipe calls for brownie mix. That’s just for ease of preparation. If you have a great brownie recipe, use it! Any brownie will do. To be honest, the brownies from a box taste so good, sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference. So use whatever you have, or whatever you have time for!
Speaking of time, timing is important here:
Bake the brownies about halfway, then pour the pecan pie mixture on top and allow it to bake the rest of the way. If you combine them at the beginning, they’ll turn into super sweet nutty brownies. And while that would be good, they wouldn’t be Pecan Pie Brownies!
This dessert gives you the best of both worlds! Enjoy!
