Pecan Pie Brownies are quick and easy to make using a box of brownie mix for the base with a simple stovetop sweet and sticky filling that bakes right on top. A perfect way to turn a traditional Thanksgiving dessert into an extra indulgent 2-in-1 treat.
18ouncesbox brownie mix (18 or 19 ounce) box, plus ingredients listed on box directions
⅔cupbrown sugar134 grams
⅓cuplight corn syrup
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line the bottom and sides of a 9x13” baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
Mix the brownie mix according to package directions. Spread the prepared brownie mix evenly into the parchment lined baking pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the top is starting to set and no wet batter is visible.
While the brownies are baking, whisk together the melted butter, sugar, corn syrup, eggs, vanilla and salt in a large bowl. Fold in the pecans ensuring they are evenly covered.
Once the brownies have baked for 20-25 minutes pour the pecan mixture evenly over the top. Return the brownies to the oven and bake for an additional 25-30 minutes or until the topping is set and no longer ‘jiggly’.
Allow the brownies to cool completely before slicing and serving.
