I made this recipe to the letter and noticed that the formula doesn't include salt. The finished brownies are sweet and chocolatey, but even 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt would have made them better. Also, adding extra pecans—approx. one cup, prior to baking—would heighten the "pecan pie" aspect of this dessert.
I have kind of a silly question; when you cut the pie into cubes do you include the crust? Thank you! This looks so yummy I am trying it today!!
I make a variation of this, make your regular brownie batter and spread in baking dish, open one can of coconut pecan ready made frosting. Stir it well inside the can, dot TBLSPs of the frosting all over the surface of the brownies, swirl with a knife. Bake per instructions on the brownie mix. Very easy and there are never leftovers when taken to a potluck.
Was very disappointed in the recipe. Would not make again
I typically will bring a plate of brownies over to a friend's when I visit (http://imunchie.com/chefmichael/munchies/chocolate-brownies) but nothing as elaborate as this! That looks amazing!
