Pecan Pie Brownies



Pecan Pie Brownies are just the brownies for Thanksgiving. These chocolaty brownies have chunks of pecan pie baked into them. It’s a combination of two delicious desserts that really work well together. Especially with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients

  • 1 (2-pound) frozen pecan pie, thawed
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 (12-ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray or butter.
  • Cut the pecan pie into chunks.
  • Place butter and chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 45 seconds. Stir and microwave another 20 seconds if not completely melted.
  • Using an electric mixer beat chocolate mixture, sugar, eggs, milk, and half of the pecan pie pieces until blended.
  • Use a wooden spoon to stir in flour and baking powder.
  • Stir in remaining pecan pie pieces. Transfer batter to prepared baking dish.
  • Bake for 45 to 50 minutes. Cool before slicing.

Notes

1/2 cup butter equals 1 stick
