Pecan Pie Brownies

Bake time 50 mins
Yield Makes 40 brownies
Want to make your brownies extra amazing? Add a premade frozen pecan pie to your homemade batter. The result? Mouthwatering brownies! Take the frozen pie out of the freezer 2 hours before you need to prepare this recipe so that it has time to thaw.

Ingredients

  • 1 (2-pound) frozen pecan pie, thawed
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 3/4 cups (11.5-ounce package) semisweet chocolate chunks
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Vegetable cooking spray

How to Make It

  1. Cut pie into cubes. Set aside.

  2. Microwave 1/2 cup butter and chocolate chunks in a glass bowl at HIGH 1 minute. Stir and microwave 1 more minute. Stir until mixture is smooth.

  3. Beat chocolate mixture, sugar, eggs, milk, and half of pie cubes at low speed with a heavy-duty stand mixer until blended.

  4. Add flour and baking powder, stirring with a wooden spoon until blended. Stir remaining half of pie cubes into batter. (Batter will be thick.) Spoon batter into a 13- x 9-inch pan coated with cooking spray.

  5. Bake at 350º for 50 minutes. Cool brownies completely on a wire rack. Cut into triangles or squares.
